Unhappy Need Help good mechanic Naples Fl

I really screwed up and chose the wrong place to install my 4.56 gears!!!! I got my truck back from this shop (a place my neighbor at work recommended) with a fresh ding in my door, scratches in my brand new Centerline alum wheels and a whine in my gears during decel. They said to stop back in 1000 miles after they are broken in and they'll make sure everything is ok. I don't think it's right that they make any noise at all so I need to find a good shop here in Naples Fl that will look at my gears and fix it. I was going to get a buddy of mine to install them but I thought it was too big of a job and didn't want to burden him with the responsibility. If he sees this post he'll probably never talk to me again!! Anybody out there from Naples, Fl???

I guess I'll just bite the bullet and go to the Dodge Dealer to fix it :-(

Yes I found that out about the dealer today. I ended up going to a shop called All Out on Enterprise Ave. he's gonna redo the gears for me. Evidentially the ring gear needs to be ground slightly to be able to fit the big 4.56 gear into the axle housing. It's been a bit of a nightmare so far. The last shop was a total bunch of monkey's cost me $1k for labor, a new set of gears and a complete install kit. It was a bad install period. I think I found a good shop now and he was willing to do custom work. Can't find that sort of thing anymore due to legal issues. Thnx for your referral
