Rubber Side Down
This is my first post so bear with me please. I bought it 2 months ago and have poured over 4k into new ring and pinion front and rear, new front axles, new bearings, new hubs, 249 T-case rebuilt w/ new VC, 3/4" spacers up front, new wheels and tires. Unfortunately I took it to a local transmission shop that should've told me they weren't familiar with 4X4s because I've been back 3x's and it's still not right. Rear end makes a knocking sound whenever I turn, which wasn't present before I took it in. Front springs squeak when driving. I had to have a different shop do T-case because after I told first shop my VC was out he asked me what a VC was. $ well has just about run dry but I'm determined to have it done by Friday because I'm going to Yosemite (snow), and want to do some mild 4 wheelin' in Fish Camp before heading into the park. I don't want to go back to first shop but the work is warrantied, and I would like to avoid paying someone else to redo the work I just payed to have done. For future reference, does anyone know of an honest, reasonable and competent shop in SoCal?
