Tucson 4WD shops

All,

Anyone have a recommendation on where to take my JKU? I'm in need of some service and would like to take it some place with a good reputation.

Specifically I'm in need of a post lift alignment and if all goes well, some axle work (gears, sleeve and gusset.)

Thanks...

Lynch automotive on 29th/ swan is a great place. They only charged $200 for my wheel bearings. They have very competitive prices.

Simmons 4x4 on country club is good too but they're always so busy you have to set up an appointment.

And for rear end work go to western differential at alvernon/ ft. Lowell. They rebuilt my 8.25 when I trashed it. A little pricey but good work and good warranty.

FYI, "a little pricey" is quite the understatement...

Western Diff quoted me $1,900 including all the required parts for a gear change. That does not include master rebuild on both axles.

4WP on speedway quoted me $680 for the labor only. That includes full rebuild on both axles. I just need to supply all parts, rebuild kit, and lube/oil.

Wow that's nuts. $1,900 to rebuild when you could just buy s whole new carrier, bearings and axles for under $1,000
