did I get an ok deal, or royally F'd?

$625 for a 8.8" rear installed, with the sway bar.... I literally did almost nothing. The rear end had all of like 17,000 miles on it... and not a spot of rust... looked brand new

Brent got his for $375, with 4.10s, and I don't think he payed anything for the install. Dunno if you got a good deal or not, just know thats what Brent paid. :dunno:

yeah, but I couldn't have done the install alone.... and it's a pretty good rear end I guess. I offered $500 for it, because I didn't want him to sell it, and have me be without a car for a long time waiting for a good deal to come by... he sprung an install fee on me... he said $100 for install fee, so I guess I got the sway bar for $25.

by the way, this was much easier than you guys made it out to be.... or maybe that's as bad as I thought it'd be, lol... I was very very nervous.... even though I didn't do much. And that GT rear end weighs a TON... good lord... can I take that huge chastity belt off it?... next step, FIX THE EXHAUST I HACKED UP with the Dremel.... that'll take at least one pay check.... TECHNICALLY, I didn't even pay the $625.... my dad owed me some money... $260 to be exact, from when we were workin' on his truck engine... so I get a $260 discount. ....

if that included the rear and everything you got a good deal. You did remember to put fluid in it or made sure it had fluid in it right?

dude, 232 I NEEEEEED a digital camera. I was supposed to trade a ported out upper intake for a 99+ for like a $400 digital camera, but the kid went MIA.... (yes, missing in action)... it got finished, I told him it was done, he said 'great".. haven't heard from him for 3 weeks since. Don't know what happened... he was gonna buy my stock air intake as well as my Saleen Side Scoops too. But yes, I NEED a digital camera, a good one.

it had fluid, but I'm going to get it checked ANYWAY... I will never have another rear run out of fluid on me again... also, I'm gonna crawl under there maybe today even and check for fluid leakage.. I love that rear end ... 2 wheel peels = the bomb

you are supposed to change the rear fluid every 20k~ or so some never do just like some never change their manual trans fluid (dumbasses) autos should have their fluid changed EVERY year.
