Looking for good reputable shop in Central NY to rebuild by aluminum cas 8.8 IRS unit

I am trying to find some reputable shops that will do an excellent job rebuilding the aluminum case 8.8 differential. I live in Syracuse NY. I was going to do this myself since I have had some success doing the 8.8 SRA in the past, but the aluminum case requires tools (like a case spreader & others) that I do not have and unwilling to buy.

The Ford dealer was expensive and I didn't really get a good feeling from the guy when I started talking about spreading the case.

Willing to travel a bit if the shop is out of the central NY area.

I figured that finding someone local would not be so hard to do since the aluminum case has been used from Mustangs to Explorers for the past decade plus. So far - no luck.

Thanks for the help !

I'm in Syracuse too.... Try calling Autogear on state fair blvd. If they can't, they'll point you in right direction. There's universal joint sales on Spencer st, also...
