Recommended ring and pinion installers Sac-area

Anyone in the Sac/Rancho Cordova area have some recommendations of business for an axle gear change?
Would you share what it cost?

He recommended River City Differential in Rancho Cordova.

Unless you are making everything stock, maybe you should look at a better axle. Most of the cost in an axel is setting up the gears. A Ford 8" or 9" or a Dana 44 might be in order.

Thank for the suggestions. From my perspective, to swap axles makes little sense to me for the way I use my rig. I am not making a stock vehicle, not am I making a rock crawler. This is my DD and my hunting/fishing rig. I have G2 1-piece axles, eliminating the weakest link in the M20. The only possible weak link left is the axle tubes. There are ways to fix that that are less expensive than the axle swaps you mentioned.
Mike stated they do not work on the M20 as they tend to come in bent up and abused making it difficult to set up. Mine is fine, but as they don't work on M20 axles, it doesn't matter.
Thanks again for the suggestions though.

Go to the drag strip and talk to the folks that are competing. 90% of the folks competing in any class above the street class will have the skills to re-gear anything (street class is entry level). Im not saying that they would do it for you, but they probably know of someone that will. Lots of the drag racers have there own auto repair business. I think they closed Sacramento Raceway, but you could always go out to Napa Valley’s track, the one that was “Sears Point” when I raced there. Walk the pits and talk to people who drag race. If you find the right person you can get your tubes welded to the housing while they have it.
