Trusted shop for differential bushings installation in SoCal????

Hi everyone,

I have moved to LA not long ago, and I am located Pasadena/626/SGV area.

I have a few parts I would like to fix on my 2003 325i w/ 120,000miles.
- Differential Bushing(s)
- Flex Disc (Guibo)
- Driveshaft Center Support (Mount+Bearing)

Anyone has experience with the above items installed or repaired at a trusted shop in greater Los Angeles area?

Providing the approx. price you paid along with the shop's name would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much!!!!!

J LAU

@JLau,

Did you find a place to get this work done? I'm also in the 626 Pasadena area and would like to know of a good spot to get this type of work done.

@DOT Thanks for the link, Alvin looks squared away and honest. I'll have to give him a call.

Any idea what he charges for oil changes?

I do my own oil changes. But he's done my FCAB, PS pump, Fuel pump (was even home serviced!), cooling system refresh, etc.

PF ag also charges a premium for their work.
They are good but a bit pricy for me.

Have you gotten a quote? I thought the same until I actually serviced with them. Price is fair and very competitive with other shops for the premium work.
