Ive heard good things about Central 4 Wheel Drive in Sac. I might be having my rear end done there soon. You could give them a try - 1-800-676-2325

I here good things about four wheel drive specialties in concord from a few members on the board. Petes gears in hayward did my rear end. Expensive, but no problems. Should have bought my own master install kit.

i second rear end specialties in the bay, and AJ uses FWPW a lot as well in sac since he has hook ups there. just stay away from river city diffs... dude smokes way too much herb to even put legos together straight (aka--we've had a lot of gears go boom when installed by him)..

Talk to Tedd (SAS Tundra from SoCal) about River City Diffs.

To make a long story short, Tedd is on a schedule and his truck is getting chopped up a long way from home. He gets fucked by RCD, and we end up taking the diff out of my roommate's truck to get him back home.

I had my gears done at RCD and things turned out great, but others have not had such good luck.

YMMV.

Later,
....Mike

I say inchworm is good too, he had his buddy set up my dana 44 gears and they did a great job. I would also say check out west coast diffs in sac. they set up alot of gears.
