not too far from you, but never done an axle swap myself...had mine done when i first got my daily driver cause i didnt have the time to try it myself, also had the clutch replaced at the same time. (mine is an 89 GL wagon, also a $150 ride!)

not too many of us in this general area i'm afraid. unlike the oregon/wash bunch, and the bunch out east. wish i could be of more help.
