as some of you know my truck has been down for quite a whille due to my dif locking up whille i was in the white mountains. i had it regeared to 488 about 6 months before this happend. when i pulled the therd out i found that one of the ring bolts fell out and landed in between the ring and pinion. :mad: so i took it back to az differental specialist and they said they where sorry and that they would take care of it. so a week goes buy and i call them to check there progress. well they tell me that they got all the parts in and it should be done in a few days so i call them four days later and they havent even started on them and they tell me thay will have them done the next day at 4pm so i go down there the next day and they tell me they got the wrong gears :mad: and that they would have the right ones over nighted this was friday and there clowsed on the weekend. so on friday the next week i go back down there and again they tell me that they got all the parts and they will have it done on tuesday so i give them till thursday and i go down there again all the way to grand ave and macdowell from mesa and they got the wrong gears again :mad: so another week goes by and no gears and another and by this time its been 7 weeks.so i call them again and they tell me it will be done tommarow at 430 so i go all the way back down there not expecting them to be done and when i got there wow to my suprise the dif is not done :mad: so i wait about 45 min and theybring it out to me and say its all done. now by this time i had no intenions on putting this thing back in my truck and driving it . tbob told me about a guy that specializes in toy diffs named ZUK so i took it to him to get it checked out. the dif not only had crap gears in it but they where 456 not 488. so i had ZUK install a new set of yukons and he had it done in a week. i have yet to settle with az dif spe. i will keep you guys posted.

Well I Hope that you get your money back from those fools who installed your gears. If you put it on a credit card, just dispute the charges. Thats one of the biggest reasons I always use plastic for parts and service.
