Getting New Gears! :D

So my 2001 automatic 4 banger can't make it up hills.. I've asked what gearing to get. I got a quote and couldn't be any happier. Only $500 for both the front and rear!!! But before I get it done, I want to be sure that I'm getting the right gearing.. (I'm a newbie)

4.88 or 4.56.. I'm running 31's right now, but I'm sure I'll be going to 33's whenever I get rid of these tires...

What axle do you have in the rear? Because a D35 can only hold up to 4.56.

Well dang. That sorta changes everything. It's stock. So a 2001 4 cyl. has a D35 in the rear and D30 in the front right? So I guess I'm getting 4.56?

INCORRECT. You can get 4.88's for it. 500.00 for parts or labor or both???? 500 sounds silly cheap for reputable gear work if its parts and labor. My shop gets 250.00 per axle for just labor. Make sure on what you are getting BEFORE doing it.

I'm getting it done by hollyoak4x4, they're located here in Delaware.. Called them up and asked, they said 250 per axle.. Maybe he figured I'd buy the gears and he'd put them in.. I'll call again and confirm.. But I can go with 4.88?

I believe that you can... And according to Absolute Offroad (who I trust to be correct!) you can. Whoever you buy gears from (I would complre your shop's rate) should know for sure. You may even want to check with Absolute Offroad on his pricing...

Interesting. $500 sounds too good to be true. Keep us posted!

$500 for parts only to regear both axles is about right, plus another $600 or so for labor for a total cost of around $1100.
