1 or 2 axles?

mines gonna be ~1100, but i know the shop, and the install kits alone from them are like $25, not ~$100, 4wp quoted me at like 1800.. dont go there

I got mine done at the shop that does the camburg race truck (according to camburg). Cost me $495 OTD. That included everything (parts & labor).

except i drive back home! lol........

on average for a 2wd expect to pay around $250 for parts and another $200 for install labor......

for a 4wd, expect to pay around $500-$600 for parts and about the same for installation.....

those parts prices include the master install kits...

2wd should be able to get parts/labor for around $500 UNLESS they install a locker or L/S unit...

Well for me it cost about $700. I bought an explorer rear with the gears and a locker installed already, I also bought a front diff, plus the cost of the brake parts for the rear axle, some tools I didn't have, fluids, welding sticks, an extension cord for the welder I borrowed. I prolly left something out but it was around $700. I did all the labor myself and it felt could accomplishing all I did. Plus now I have disc brakes in the back and boy do I love them.
