Seattle Area Gear Installation Recommendations

Anybody have a recommendation for someone who they trust to install some gears into a Dana 44, pulled and cleaned? Looking to stay in the Seattle area, up through Everett. I have the gears and a locker to install....

My other car has doors.

I've had good luck with Randy's www.ringpinion.com
Don't know how they feel about customer supplied parts.

Thanks. I have them as a "plan B" only because of the customer supplied parts...

Only way to find out is to call them. If a shop installs parts you provide, there's no warranty on what's installed, and sometimes no warranty on their install work. When I go to do the rehearsal on the Ranchero, they are one place I'll be calling to get the straight skinny.

pffft. What's up Andrew? Are you that jacked up buddy? You should just slap 'em in for him.
I had my 4.10's I got off Andy351 slapped in by a back yard dude with no regrets.
Like you said... it's not like he's going to get any warranty work done and you can probably save him a few bucks and put a little scratch in your own pocket.

oh... wait. I didn't say that out loud. IF you were going to do something crazy like that... you'd have to PM about it so there would be no conflict over sales pimpin' over the site. Money changing hands and all that. Although... you could always just hook him up as a fellow Bronco buddy and if he chose to make a donation... then that would be between to consenting adults.


Or... I could shut up and just wish Shane luck with finding a decent shop.

*eyes go wide* I didn't say have them do the work, I only said for him to call them to see what they would and would not do. If there's anyone on the site willing to do the work with the skills to do it right and they speak up, sure. Hell, if I had the skills and the experience with a place to do it, I already would've offered them to Shane. But I don't, so I suggested to him to call Randy's and talk to them.
