The price I was told was $1435...I can wait until December, I already have new rotors/pads, #1 T-bars, and Moog BJ's waiting in the garage for when I do the lift...I probably will have to do the ball joints and rotors/pads before December though.

MOTO,

I had a buddy that lived out there (Conyers)...went to Christian school with him in Henry county. Gears are not that bad...it’s the paying someone to install them that costs out the @ss. I was at 4wheel parts over in forest park and asked them what the install price would be on gears for my truck, I was curious and the guy told me $1200 and that didn’t include the gears or the install kits...thank goodness I have friends that like to help with stuff like that.

Yea.....and i EFFING HATE IT!! the auto trucks take more kindly to larger tires than the manuals do. Believe me, you'll read the opposite on this forum, but from personal experience here...you want to regear.








right now we're working out the use of the 2post lift for this weeked. if it happens, there'll be muchos fotos!

Agree!!! My 01 was an auto and its a night and day difference to my 04 which is a manual with the 35's. I cant wait to re-gear my 04 because it made a huge difference when I re-geared the 01. Both came with the 4.10's and the 35's do seem to dog the 04 a $hit ton more.

1200$ to do 2 ring and pinion gears.. just for labor.. Are they gold plating the axles on that price?

I'll rebuild a whole axle for 50$ if anyone buys the parts and brings them over..

' Non-gunpoint-robbery ' is the term I would use for their ' services '.

I think thats just "4 wheel parts" pricing. Theres a shop right down the street from me that will re-gear and put a lunch box locker in, AND install the axle for $300 labor. 4 wheel parts sucks
