  • Proline vs Genuine Front Drive Shaft

    Seems like I have two options for a front prop. Proline with rubber boot/gaiter ($150) or Genuine with no boot ($270). Roverfarm also has a no-boot version ($135).

    What to get? Don't mind forking up the dough if folks have had terrible luck with proline.

    For the extra money I'd go with the Genuine. Or take your old one to a drive line shop and they can fix it up for you. They are generally just Spicer parts, nothing special about it.

    Heavy spinny thing go around very fast....Why take a chance on a piece of junk.

      I bought a new one from RN last summer. I asked about the huge price difference between ProLine and Genuine. I asked which one is more durable, and he said "I don't know, I've never sold a genuine one". I bought the ProLine one.

        Went with Proline. Justified it as a front prop failure won't keep you from getting home. Let's see if I regret it.
