I just got my axle back!

I've got to put in a plug for John Lehde at Automotive Drive train in Tigard, Oregon. He did a beautiful job and he wouldn't take any of my money! Bearings and seals alone, must have cost him around $1,000.00! One bearing set (for the pinion shaft) I know cost him over $250.00. And yet he won't take my money.

Any way, if you need tranmission, axle or driveline work, John is the man!.

You are one lucky man to have someone so dedicated in your area. And I am not talking about the money! It is not often that you can find someone to actually do the work and do it in a timely manner. He deserves all the plugs you can give him.

Re: I just got my axle back!

Can he "set up" a rear axle?
