How much did everyhing cost you when you were done? Parts and labor.BillyGoatGruff said:Good mod. Will definitely be able to tell a difference by the seat of the pants driving. Had mine put in by a professional rear end shop. Ordered the gears from Oz and had them put in locally. Be sure to put the same type of GM lubricant as what was originally in the car, or at least that is what was recommended by the shop. I wanted to put shock resistant oil with the friction modifier in it but they didn't suggest I do that. Be sure to get a new set of cv joint to coupler bolts and also get new bearings for the pinion shaft. All in all, a bit over $400 for the install, lube, and bearings. It was more for the labor and installation than it was for the gears, so don't let the dealers sell you gears higher than this!
Definitely have someone who knows what they're doing for the install. If done wrong, you'll get whining of gears or worse.kingkong401 said:I am interested in doing this also, where can i get all the parts from at a good price? Should i do it my self, dont know much about cars, but i have access to a lift and all the tools ever needed, and my dad knows alot about cars and would help. Or should i have my dealer do it? Any advice would be helpfull.
Tech II is the code reader/programmer used by GM for every OBD2 car since '96. You can read realtime engine date, record it for future playback, and use it for the speedo cal. mentioned above. Nice toy to have access to.EDC said:

Man I need to get out of the shop more...
