    i honestly beleive that fitting new gears is best left to a profesional outfit. if you get it wrongyou will wreck the gears in no time and unless you have the proper mechanical know-how and equipement it is easier to let someone elso do it.

    it cost me $300 to get 3.45 diff gears fitted (they supplied - used). i supplied the LSD center which they also re-conditioned and fitted at the same time. took em about 3-4hrs to do and i got a loan car for the arvo they had mine.

    shop around, if you can supply the parts (gears and LSD center) it shouldn't cost to much:thumbsup:
