Where is best place to get a driveshaft?

I put this in my other question about what the shaft is made of, but no replies. Marine Machining in MI quoted me about $250. OJ Props recommended me to them. Where is the best place to get one? The cheaper the better, haha. Its a 1973 S&S. Single taper, keyway and two set screws on coupler side, keyway and threads with pin hole on prop side.

I'd go with the recommendation that you received from OJ Props. They know what they are talking about. I bought a new shaft last year for about $350.00 so, take the advice, run with it and save yourself the $100.00!!

Shaft is ordered and should have been shipped earlier today. Thinking about upgrading to a dripless seal while its out, is it worth it? Also, do I need to replace the strut bearing or should it be fine?
