    replaced a ujoint and carrier bearing 2000 miles ago and apparently I didn't properly mark it so now its off balance.

    Called a shop, arizona differential, and they quoted me 1350-1500 to fix what I feel is a lot.

    Rebuild/regear both diffs, rebuild/reseal transfer/tranny, rebuild/rebalance drive shaft, install tranny mount, and flywheel. This includes wheel bearings. The mount/flywheel I already have as well as one ujoint.

    What's everyones thoughts? I wish I could do it myself, but don't have the time, and need the reliability. And a warranty is nice too.

    As for the regear, he said maybe 5.29s I think? At 55mph I'm at 2000rpm. Its killing me as I do aloooooot of free way driving.

    I'm going to try and put up with wobby driveshaft until I can get my lt ucas rebuilt so I can have em install those too as they're gonna have spindle pulled anyways.
