Default Gear Setup SE PA

Hey guys, looking for a reputable shop to set up gears in my dana 30 for me in Southeast PA. I live in Phoenixville to give you an idea of where I roughly am, 30 min outside of Philly.
I have a local shop here that does work on trucks often, but they're quoting me over $600 just for labor. I was hoping to only have to pay about half of that since I've got the gears and install kit already. If anyone can make any recommendations to me, that would be awesome. Thanks!

Hey, thanks for the reply. I've got a shop that's going to do them now, they quoted me $400 as well. Going with a G2 R&P and Alloy USA install kit with Timken Bearings. All good though, thanks again!

Wow $400 is expensive, my buddy did mine for free and another buddy does them for $100 per gear set up

Are your buddies in se pa? 400 is by far the cheapest I've found at a shop with the right tools to set up gears. Sadly I don't have friends with the tools or experience to do the job so I'm stuck going to a shop.
