New to Redmond area, looking for a shop (D44 axle u-joints)

Hey guys, just moved to the Redmond/Bellevue area a couple months ago and I'm looking for a shop nearby to do my front u-joints as the passenger side has started making some fun noises.

Any one have any recommendations? Also what kind of prices should I be expecting?

Thanks!

Why not just do them yourself there extremely easy to do. The joints themselves should be about $20-30 a piece could easily be done in a couple hours. Do you have a Les Schwab's close they do them but your going to pay labor. They would be around $250-$300

Not everyone has the garage/driveway space, experience and/or the necessary tools. I pull the shafts (takes about 10 mins tops) and take them to NAPA with some new u-joints since I don't have a vise and I hate trying to pound them out. They're done and ready to put back in $10 and 20 minutes later while I eat lunch across the street.

Im going to agree with tjcj, just do them yourself, Ive done them on a trail in the rain in under an hour.

I've heard many good things about Randy's Ring and Pinion in Everett. Might be worth checking them out.
