    I'm passing through. Heading to LA next. Torn inner cv's. Don't want to hit the highway without having them swapped.

    Can someone help or recommend a shop in Sac. to do it? I know it's simple shit, I just don't know how, and since I'm traveling in the truck, it's my DD and lifeline.

    1999 Tacoma V6 4x4. ADD hubs. Thanks.

    Its a simple job. We all typically do our own work. Nothing wrong with Les Schwab. One of the most reputable companies in Oregon. If you have an issue with them in California, be sure to write management. Les Schwab strives for customer service above any company I've ever used. The employees should be meeting you when you pull up. Some stores they actually run to you.

    Les schwab is fine, they just want $300 for each side.

    I know it's simple and that most users here do it themselves. That's why I thought I might be able to find someone here willing to help out.

    You don't have to worry about a tore inner for your trip just replace it when you get home. I drove with no boots for over a year with no issues.
