Front DS swap from Hard Rock 4x4 - experience?

Since the Aussie install I need to fix my front vibes. Was looking at getting the shaft balanced ($90 from East County DS) but now I'm considering installing a CV front from a TJ (with new yoke on the TC). This setup from Tom Woods would run about $360. I called Hard Rock 4x4 down in Otay and they said they can set me up with the front CV and yoke for $225. Guy seemed pretty knowledgeable. My questions are:

Anybody deal with these guys?
Does this sound like a good idea?

He has pretty much cornered the market for used jeep parts in San Diego. I gave up trying to buy anything from him a long time ago because he normally charges close to dealer prices but I have never heard anything negative otherwise.

Go in with cash and make a deal.

I have gone to Hard Rock 4x4 in Otay a couple of time. They are a junkyard that only carry jeep and old toyota 4x4 vehicles. so what ever they sell you. you can also get in another yunk yard a little cheaper. and the new parts they sell are somewhat like ebay quality parts, so you might try to search on online first.
