4 wheel parts for gear installation?

I need some side, spider and bearings installed. 4 wheel parts quoted me 750 with parts and labor. A lot cheaper than the dealer.

Should I be trusting them to do gear work? Or is that only a concern dealing with ring and pinion?

You might want to repost this on your regional page. Each location is different- and some are better than others. I'd be asking them how often they do gears at your location. The dealer will always be more expensive- and may not do gears very often either.
I've had them do work on my truck- personally wouldn't trust them to do gears. But IMO.

You would not trust 4wheel parts for your gears or the dealership?

They have sleeves and gusset my front Dana 30, and rebuult, spiders, carriers, and ring pinions. They may be pricey yet they abide by whatever Warranty you chucked out with them from the beginning. For example.. a ring and pinion swap for under 100.

I would assume many other locations have quality manager and mechanics working there. If not, then contact 4wheel corporate.

No. That being said, because they are a corp store, they will fix it more than likely. I had a buddy who had 4wp do his gears, a couple miles down the road and his LSD failed. They fixed it all.

he's not getting a whole new set of gears, just spiders and stuff. No complicated measuring required and the parts are probably less than $100

My most recent quote from them was under 100 and it was a ring and pinion change. I sheared the teeth. The parts are defiantly more than a hundred. I've had Warranty cover a whole carrier assembly. Not for 70 dollars though lol.. But for cheaper than you could DIY with full experience and cheaper than any shop I've heard of.

That being said, I have also heard of some 4wheel parts in different areas not abiding by the "4Wheel Parts Xtreme Warranty"

Its all about the relationships you make with these people taking care of your rig. 0.02

That all be

Here in Low Cal, I have used Powertrain Industries for years. They do everything from repairing a drivetrain in a special powerline powered dolly to our 6x6 Line trucks even the old Military diffs and transfer cases... just my two cents....

All of my dealings with 4WP have been negative and I tried 3 different locations. They installed my spacers upside down, they didn't secure my abs sensor wires back in their retainers, the damaged one of my new wheels during install, they left 2 of my tires at 60+ psi after seating the beads, they NEVER use torque wrenches and just impact everything on, they told me I wouldn't be able to install my poison Spyder bumpers by myself and yet I had no problems, etc.... This was at 3 different locations.

I have more money than time so I tried
To let others do the work but I'm back to doing everything myself now.
