Good shop in San Diego?

Post by SD4x4TRD »

Wondering if anyone knew of a good shop in San Diego to repair a transfer-case leak...
It could even be a rear-end shop or something...

Four wheel direct,4-wheel parts, and ORW dont really specialize in that...

thanx for input-

Either ITS in El Cajon or JSA (Jeff Sheckel Automotive) in Santee. Both are great shops.

A friend of my family owns Automotive Fleet Services on Fairmount just off I-8 (just north of the Home Depot). He's in the local street rod scene, and does good work. He's done a few things for me and my folks and does a good honest job. (In fact, the last thing he did for me was fix a leaky pinion seal in my Tahoe).

Their # is (619) 283-0133, ask to speak with John.

Valley Transmissions in El Cajon has a great reputation and I have had very good experiences with them. As far as most of the mechanic friends that I have talked to, Valley is the only place to go with transmission problems.

It better not be the SuperDuty or the BUS that needs fixing!

I am glad it wasn't another poll.

:P :x :P

The BEST shop that I know of would hands down have to be VIKING CUSTOM WORKS in Escondido. I take Everything there and they do a great job, have never had to return anything and have the best prices. I have had everything from custom fab stuff done to motor and tranny rebuilds. I strongly recommend them to everyone.
