Gears and tlock install

Hey, im looking to see if anyone knows bout ne good places in the miami, fl area who does good installs on a t-lock and rear end gears. Im looking for a good job done at a fair price and got no idea where to look. Any suggestions, recomendations? I hear it can get a lil pricey so id also appreciate maybe like a ballpark price on wat the install would cost. Thanx.

i donno what it cost because i havent got mine yet....but dont look for the lowest price... i would go to the person with the highest respect in your town... gears crucial and if done wrong can mess some stuff up and cost more money in the end...i asked the same question about the price and i got 250 - 300 for gears...prolly more for t-lok also

Re: Gears and tlock install

not sure in your area but I can give you some tips. when you go and ask the shop if they do it talk to a mechanic and ask him about the specifications on the backlash, the pinion depth, the crush sleve, and the wear pattern on the gears. Ask in a way as to see how much they know about those areas. If they dont know or say its not needed go else where as such things are very important.

Another note pay more for a better job, if you pay less and get a crappy job... and the rear end fails then you are out all that money to do it over RIGHT this time... so save money, save time, do it right the first go around.

DONT BUY USED PARTS this is another way to do it right the first time.

I would get a list of potential shops you are interested in after talking to them, then google them and look for any issues people have had as well as check the BBB for complaints filed aginst them. The last thing you want is a year long war to get your car fixed right/money refunded. There is to much crap flying around to not do a bit of research first.

Finally get a warranty IN WRITING!!!! do NOT take the owners "word" unless you like bending over and taking it up the butt if you need warranty work. If the gears whine, they need to fix it (make sure thats listed) if they break with in XX miles they need to fix it, etc etc.
