That is what I was told from a friend that does race cars. You can buy your gears through a lot of different places, just do a search, or look in any 4wd magazine. I have seen sets on e-bay that go for really cheap, but are good brand name. The labor shouldn't take much more if any than 6 hrs. for both axles. @ 65.00 hr (which is normal price here) is only $390.00 for labor which is a good pay for only 3/4 of a days work. Do the math.
I did just a quick search on e-bay, and I got this complete with all new everything, front and rear package 4.88 ratio

Good luck, and keep this in mind.......don't let a dishonest wrench monkey cheat you out of the money you work for. A man has to make a living and all, but there are honest mechanics out there and they usually do better work than the over-priced bloated-ego wrench monkeys do
