Looking for shop suggestions for SYE and shaft install.

Hey everyone, recently lifted my yj and am looking to get a SYE installed and a new rear shaft to eliminate my tc lowering kit and driveline issues. Any suggestions on where to get the work done at a decent price here in San Diego.

There are only a couple of jeep specific shops and they all charge an arm and a leg. Any mechanic could do an SYE but chances are most would have never done it an would shy away or would quote a high price. Aside from laying under the jeep installing an SYE is one of the more simple to do upgrades if you can do it yourself then order a new rear shaft from Tom Woods.

Thank you for the advice, I am going to go that route and am considering picking up a rebuild kit while I’m at it.

Any suggestions on where I might take the halves to get the bearings pressed in. I am down in Chula Vista. Was thinking just one of the local transmission shops but any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you

I've always just used a brass hammer. the bearing are in the aluminum housing and are not hard to get in or out. the exception is the needle bearing in the rear cover which I usually leave alone, there is about no way to get it out without special tools or a Dremel.

I could give you a hand but don't have a spare weekend day til probably mid july
