Pinion Seal Leak (Portland, OR)

Hello! I've got a pinion seal leak on the rear differential of my 98 4cyl Wrangler. I've recently moved and no longer have a garage, so I'm looking for a reliable place in the Portland area that can fix it for less than $150. I've heard axle or differential shops will do it for around $30, but I haven't found one yet. Does anyone have a recommendation?
Thank you!!

You might try Paden's (sp) on Killingsworth about 85th or so (last building on right eastbound before I-205). There also used to be a 4x4 shop at about 71st on Division, but after Harold sold out I am not sure the new owners were able to survive. There is also a place south of Oregon City 2 miles east of 99E that works on Jeep transmissions (and rear ends, I think), but I can't remember the name nor even the road they are on.

You might also call John at 205 Auto Wrecking as they are the only Jeep wrecking yard in the area. He might know of someone.

My front leaks a little, if it wasn't leaking I would be worried. Otherwise it just keeps my pumpkin fresh.
