Anyone know a local place that can shorten axle shafts, and possibly re-spline them?

Thanks in advance!

        I've heard of people using them before, but was hoping for something local.  Thanks for the tip.

          Could also try Canada Auto (1688 St. Matthews). I'm not sure about axle shafts but I know they do custom work on driveshafts...

            Wesley Machine shop on Wall st built a custom driveshaft for my Audi, they might do CV axles, give them a call and see.

              Thank you both for the advice, apparently driveshafts are far easier to make and modify than axles though.
