Depends on what you get on your own too. Gear oil,rebuild kit and stuff for cost but no matter what labor isn't cheap. That why I do my own mods

Re: 7.5 rear end

Here in Watertown, South Dakota I was quoted $200-$300 for the whole job (Tlok and gears). Shop labor rates at small shops vary from $30 to $50 per hour. The local stealership shop rate is $80/hr. Yeah, the small shops are swamped with work and the dealerships aren't.

Funny how that works out right?

Re: 7.5 rear end

It is $85.00 an hour for labor here.
You are getting pricing from a specialized Mustang shop I hope. Not anywhere else-
There hasn't been a shop with $60.00 an hour labor around here since 1991 or so.

I am not aware of any shops that specialize in Mustangs anywhere near here.. probably not one within 300 miles? Maybe one in Minneapolis?

The place that I intend to do my tlok and gears specializes in differentials and transmissions. They builds rear ends for most of the race cars within a substantial radius.

I got my quote at a regular auto body shop that specializes in body repairs and collisions however, they also do transmission and regular drivetrain work so idk maybe thats why its on the higher side

Re: 7.5 rear end

I would Google "Mustang Clubs" or "Mustang Repair Shop" followed by your zip code. Everybody needs their own little Mustang shop they deal with on occasion. Your Mustang shop will provide you special services and get the work done quickly, & correctly. I have done all the mods on my car myself. I work on it all the time but I go to the Mustang shop for gears/differentials, dyno tunes, clutch, and transmission. I got lazy last week and paid them to install that brand new exhaust system, completely welded and custom, one of a kind. Anyway, I bet if you searched and did some research, you'll find a few. If not, I'll give you directions to ours here in Manassas Va., no problem.
