$450 is the going rate around here, if you can get it done for $200 then go for it, there is a lot involved in setting the lash in a ring and pinion and it takes some time.

Yeah, it's all labor. If you have the right gauge to measure the lash and a set of shims you can do it yourself. It's not rocket science, but it is "detail work".

The guys that do them down here, do them at least twice a week to different cars... So, they have come accustomed to doing it...

the place that i went was called the mustang shop off of lamar here in dallas. the # is 214 421 3070 and his name is gerald he is a great guy and tell him that chris sent you that has the explorer. the only problem is that i know he is always busy so you should call him and see when he could get you in.

Dang, Bob, what's the matter with you? You manage to shed yourself of an old truck, shed your load, shed your inhibitions -- but you can't finish your shed! Sheeeeshhh!!!

And all this time, I thought you were full of shed...wait, is that the right word? :p
