    i use this https://www.amazon.com/Fluke-Infrar...hermometer&qid=1582424969&s=industrial&sr=1-5 for my temp monitoring. What about play, can you check urs on warm day after driving it just how much play u have in drive shaft up to rear gear.

    i am thinking whine is normal but want to make sure i dont miss anything, i just remember or at least i think i remember that play in shaft was small, ill measure it tommorow.

    Nice. That’ll do the trick. I’ll check it out tomorrow. How many miles do you have since the gear swap?

    Cool. Yes I’m curious to see how mine hold up at higher speeds on the interstate. I’ve still not gotten the chance to really drive it. Just swapped fluids a few days ago and have been dealing with school/work. I’ll drive it around tomorrow and let you know how my setup is doing.

    That’s normal. The shop that installed mine said that’s just a side effect of having the new gears. I don’t hear it as much because I have mud terrain tires but when I listen closely I can hear it

    What have you guys been paying for install cost of your gears? Looking to do the swap finally but this shop quoted me about $2300 just for labor alone. Seems ridiculous!

    Premier west gears did my setup and the pricing was fair, significantly less than $2300. I haven’t had any issues in 700 miles. Fluid swap after break-in period showed pretty good fluid color and nothing on the magnet that shouldn’t have been there.

    see previous posts, i paid out the door 3400, some paid as cheap as 2900 so it seems to flux depending where you are and who you use.

    Lots of these guys giving you numbers $2800+ are most likely including the cost of the gears themselves.

    Labor alone should be anywhere between $1k-$2k. $2300 is a little ridiculous. I've been calling around for quotes the past couple weeks and settled on a shop to do it for $1500 with my supplied parts. Lowest quote I got was $1200, highest was $1900. This is in San Diego btw.

    I'm scheduled to have my gears installed this week. I'm in the SF Bay Area and was quoted $1,900 for labor. This was one of the highest quotes I got, but also by one of the most recommended/reputable shops in the area.
