Good Diff shops in SE suburbs?

Does anyone know of any decent diff places in the bayswater area and surrounding suburbs?
I rang trans-diff in bayswater and got attitude so I wont be taking it there.

What would a reasonable price be to have a mini spool fitted? Is $385 about right? I can buy the actual spool for $135 so $250 labour seemed a bit much IMO.

BTW before anyone talks about legalities I know the implications. I need it for heathcote this weekend.

Thanks guys.
Dan

Re: Good Diff shops in SE suburbs?

Dan, out of curiosity, what "attitude" did you receive from the guys in Bayswater?

There are a few places in Dandy but I personally can't recommend any. If you buy a Parts magazine, there are usually dozens of advertisements for diff places. It might be an idea to talk to each one individually.

Let us know how you go anyway.

So how are they illegal for road use then? The car will handle better.

Until you try to turn a corner, and both tyres still want to turn at the same speed - one has to slip.
