    $2300 for front and rear re gear! I hung up as soon as I heard that! That's insane!

    What was included in that price and what kind of number were you expecting? Throw out all the facts before trying to make a company look bad.

    10 years part warranty and 90 days labor. For $2300 I was getting G2 4.56 gears because that's all they will install. I got 2 other quotes of 1600 and 1900 from other off road shops

    2300 isnt horrible considering the 10 year warranty and the fact that they are prob not setting them up they will prob have thim sent off to another shop.

    If you dont like there price and got a lower quote somewhere else just go to the other shop. We all know gears are expensive, we dont really want to hear about how you dont want to spend money

    $2,300 for parts and labor didn't seem terribly unreasonable IMO. Do you have to give them cores or are you buying all new and keeping your old stuff?

    It is not an insane price considering the 10 year warranty. Do the other shops also offer 10 years on their $1800 installed gears?

    Why do you need to regear anyway? What size tires are you running?

    Front and rear should be 1800-2400 depending on shops overhead, warranty and choice of gears. Some second gens require a new pinion yoke 27/28 spline, don't know which years off hand. When spending money on drivetrain mods it's always wise to consider the shop doing it first and the bottom line second, you don't want to be stuck with issues that you cannot fix yourself, if it was easy you would do it yourself.

    Why so much? I get that there's two diffs to do, but when I drove mustangs, re-gears were around 400, parts and labor.

    1450 would be tempting. Cheap enough to offset the incompetence, knowing it they might throw in a body lift for the troubles
