    So I just tossed on a eibach pro lift on my 17 taco. I wasn’t very comfy doing the ecgs bushing so I didn’t install it. I have only drive a few miles but seems fine right now..
    What is the consensus with the dealership replacing the bearing with a ecgs one?
    Before I talk to them, is there special lingo or busting out tsb’s to sway them to do it?
    Thanks!

    You may have mixed results asking a dealership to install non-factory parts in your diff.

    Most wont do it... it's kinda like bringing your own steak to the restaurant and asking the chef to cook it for you.

    Hahahaha. Through the darkness of doing it myself that made me :rofl::rofl:


    And I’d safely assume, a shop... would charge ~300 or something ridiculous..?

    It’s really now that big of a task. If you buy their removal tool, makes things even better. And you can rent a bushing driver set from your favorite autozone.

    Yeah, to do it you have to pull the CV which involves a decent amount of work. Book hours at the dealer will hurt your feelings.

    Alrighty, I’ve poked through quite a few posts and have only seen people say what ECGS charges which is 150$. Anyone ever read what other shops were charging? I’d pay 150 to not have to worry about it honestly.

    Ask in your local threads, 12pk of beer and lunch may get it done, just ask.

    I paid $150 as well for my local shop. I had them do it at the same time they were replacing my stock suspension so don't know if it affected the price or not.
