Installing gears is a pretty involved process. There are a lot of tolerances that need to be just right for them to mesh properly. Professional installation is definitely reccomended, unless you have done it before. Shouldn't cost more than about $300 to $350 to have a pro do it for ya!

Re: scored some 3.73's

if they are used accept that they may make noise once in the car, even if used only for a bit. If you are ok with that then get someone to put them in (its not just something anyone should attempt as its not hard but there are special things that have to be done/measured to get it right)

and as said above if you plan to pay 300 bucks to install them the only install new parts and rebuilt your tlok unit while you are doing it as it has to come out anyway.

If you are going to do it, do it right and be done. Have the traklok rebuilt, get an install kit and fluid and take it somewhere. There are lash settings that need to be measured, etc. You could do it yourself if you love that rear end whine, but you will be happier having someone do it for you. Check out nationaldrivetrain.com for install kits etc.

Re: scored some 3.73's

I've put in at least 15 sets .. it's not easy / in and out a few times or more till you get the shimming right ....
But believe it or not , I've installed Ford racing ring and pin's (new) with out setting them up ,just re-using the old shims and they NEVER whine .. i think the factory gears are made so well they just match ??? that's my theory ....
but if you've never done them ,have someone else do it right ... good luck

Not saying you can't get lucky, but I would never advise installing a gear without setting correct pinion depth and back lash.
