So I had my gears installed today. 3.45s and trak-lok!! When I picked it up he gave me a bill for $538!! he told me 425 when I dropped it off. so worked him down to 490 on labor. so much for a $300 install. I love them!!! It makes a world of a diffference.

I do NOT recomend using AAMCO!!!!!! here's why

I was coming home from aamco and when I was at speeds of 60mph and up the rear end shaked severely. So I called they said they couldnt do anything till next week cause their shop was full. so I continued home. It got worse the farther I went. So I got home and checked my lugs.... THEY WERE ONLY FINGER TIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I called aamco and told them what had happened. and he proceeded to tell me that they didnt remove the wheels. which is BS because you have to pull the axles to remove ring and pinion. and there was brake fuid on the axle and calipers. There is no way to bleed the brakes without removing wheels. IDIOTS! and they call themselves master mechanics. If you want to drive your car more than 20miles from the shop dont take your ride to AAMCO you loose your wheels. they also didnt install my new speedo gear I gave them.

Took it for a test after I put my other wheels on and torqued them. I was taking it back up to 70 to see if it shaked still. well I was accelerating lightly about 1/2, 2/3 throttle and next thing I know I am doing 95 in 4th gear.

what can I say the gears I love
The install not so much.

94 v6 manual, 3.45s w/t-lock, cai, straight straight through dual exhaust, sct eliminator.
