Exclamation Recommend a differential shop

What would be a recommended differential shop in the lower mainland?

I need to get a circlip installed into my R180 and put back together. A circlip has defeated us... Thanks.

Any transmission shop should be able to handle it without difficulty. Type trans shop into google maps around your area and go with it.

So for search purposes in the future, we called up IWE, who told us to go to Bert's Automatic Transmission on Kingsway in vancouver. Some money and 3 hours later the diff is back together and the c-clip is magically in the godd*mn slot.

Pretty good place imo. Dude recognized the diff as a "nissan Rxxx" diff right away. Pretty good for just seeing the casing.

Yes, Bert's is a first rate shop IMO.

My first racecar (Datsun 510) was originally owned by Bert's son, John and had Bert's Automotive painted down both sides. Looked cool.

Glad I could help.
