Western WA machine shop

Any fellow runner owners know of a good western WA machine shop for the rear axle seal job? I live in Kent and the few shops I've called insisted on doing it via FSM specs and they wouldn't do the retainer flip. When I tell them about the seal redesign they say something along the lines of "yeah I know about the redesign, we just press it in less for good contact" and "it's not an issue"

I'd imagine there are quite a few forum members on here. I see many 4runners (with mods) driving around here.

I have seen a couple, I saw Alex's new Lexus as I passed it on the University bridge about a month ago, but there seems to be a higher concentration further north. Maybe it's just dead when I commute. The Facebook page 4runners of Washington has a fair amount of locals with cool rigs as well.

What do you charge for pressing parts in? Assume I have all the parts and they just need pressing. Front and rear ends. Not in a hurry to do it now because they aren't leaking, but just curious
