at a shop? ballpark? around 1500 on the cheaper side...most places around 2k (at least around here that i've heard)

I've got a 2.5 manual as well...gonna run 4.88's but having a friend do them for 500 bucks...

4.88 is right but the cost range is from $500 to $800 an axle around here.

Gear sets are 2-250 per axle depending on brands, so about $500 or so... I would run the Superior set shown below at 209 a set. SUPERIOR AXLE & GEAR - products new home - Superior Axle and Gear\'s D35488 Ring & Pinion - Dana 35 4.88 Ratio Gear Set
