Looking for a shop to get my rear end fixed. I need to get a carrier installed in the rear and the gears need to be re-installed and pinion depth reset. Anyone know of a good place in san antonio?

The only thing I've done like that was the re-gear, E-Locker installs front and rear, and S35 with C-clip eliminator, done all at once by 87 Gear, and they seem to know what they're doing and are generally reasonably priced. Eric is the owner (last name Robertson, if I recall correctly). They're on the east/southeast side at 87 and 410. They don't do exclusively offroad stuff, but also big rigs and other large work trucks (dump trucks, etc).

Does George have a twin in SA? Smile

thanks, a friend of mine that hangs with the racing crowd recommended Thrash Differentials. They gave me a reasonable price (less than what the labor was to get the gears installed in the first place).

I'm not sure I've heard of them. It's these guys you're talking about, I assume?

I had some 411 gears put in an old Ford Galaxie and used Thrash. They did a great job and the price was reasonable. We used them when i was in the auto repair business. They also did some great work on some driveshafts also.
