Re: O/T Harveys complete jeep shop sucks!
Something sounds bad wrong with that quote - or post - I've been dealing with Harvey's for many years, they are high, but not near that high. That must have included much more work than the post stated.
When other places give you that blank stare when you need something, Harvey's has it in stock. That alone is worth a little extra. The work I've seen them do is top notch.
Recently I was quoted - I think - about $200 labor at 4 West, Corona, for a SYE installation - just labor, not inluding the parts.
That quote from Harvey's must have included repairing/replacing other things with it, since he said he "broke" the old shaft. Or may have included unrelated items.
It's easy enough to check the price with them on a SYE installation - just call them! There's no need to flame a shop that does good work - one of the few "non butchers."
