You may also check out Randy's R&P. Many places get there stuff from them so why not cut out the middle man.

does he need a ring and pinion or a rear end? if his rear end is shot completly and needs rebuilt then when he gets another one it should have a good r&p in it. if he needs a R&P but the rest of the axle is good he needs to take it to the shop for repairs in which case the shop will provide it. from your question it would seem you have never done one of these before so it will be a complicated fix for you to perform on your own.

For the average person any neighborhood transmission shop would consider this an easy fix.
