The axle will have either 3 numbers with a space after the first one, or an 'L' in that space. what this is is gear ratio and whether you have limited slip or not. Mine reads '4L10" which means 4.10 gears, and limited slip. If theres a space, like "4 10" then its an open diff..

Depends on who you take it to and how they charge, but I'm guessing $400 to $600 plus the cost of the parts.
