Maybe you could hire Danny to help. He has probably done 10 sets and authored the rod bearing DIY. He helped one member at a rent a lift place in RI.

In RI you have the garage mentioned in the rod bearing DIY. I'd do it there.

SYT could help if you want to learn and get your hands dirty. He has helped other members DIY rod bearings.

Its about an 8 hour job. Probably there are some pros who have done it many times who can do it in 6 and there are first time DIYers who are taking 10. If the shop is using book time for the job, you will be charged for even more hours of labor. I would keep looking around. Did you ask Shadow if he would help or do you have no interest in helping yourself (which is OK most owners are not DIYers).

Shadow was extremely helpful and was more than willing to do the job, however Im going to stick with a insured shop, just to cover myself if anything were to happen....... Im sure he would do an A++ job as multiple members have followed his DIY....just want to cover myself.

Hopefully the shop will do as good a job as Shadow so you wont have to sue it and try to get it to file an insurance claim
