I took mine to kirkpatrics in Chilliwack. They were very reasnable. Don't fuck with a 2 bit install or you'll regret it.

It's just a diff, guys, not rocket science. I did mine and it's working just fine for me.

I'm not looking to be a fuckin' hero, just saying that 500 bucks for 20 minutes of work is a little excessive just because it looks a little scary at first.

Well you got lucky. I'ld love to see you do it 20 min.

for the actual setting up of the diff? depends on the diff, if it's a toy/zuk style third you can do it on the bench and it's easier..but if it's a regular style jeep/chev diff cover style and you have to use shims and shit which means you have to pop it in and out a bunch of times it can take longer.. but it's just a matter of hitting the specs and getting a good pattern..

When me and my buddy did it on my heep I had a set of hogged out bearings and a box of shims I borrowed from B and a deflection gauge.. hardest part was prying the carrier out the..five or six times to change shims. I haven't done one with a crush sleeve before but my buddy did last week and he said it was dead simple.

Maybe we both just got lucky.:dontknow:

Well my buddy and me did the rear today started at 11 am and finished fairly early so started on the front and saw that I need 2 ball joints and figured I might as well throw some axle shaft u-joints in at the same time so decided to stop before we got too far ahead of ourselves. So we put the front back together and were finished by 2:30 all cleaned up and eating steak and drinking beer![cheers] So it drives awsome now the 4.11's make a bit of difference I will find out on the freeway tommorrow! But the mini spool is gonna take some getting used to!!![36] [36] [36]
Can't wait till I'mm done! Well back to the parts store for now I guess:dontknow: [36] [cheers]

carrier springs in abby did mine on my d30 a while back, costed me 300 bucks cash, talk to john or tyler and they should be able to hook ya up, btw they love cash jobs, but d44`s are a little more difficult cause the shim packs are behind the carrier bearings which requires alot of dicking around, pulling the carrier out, putting it back in, bla bla bla if they dont get the shim pack close, but there pretty good with installing, only took em 3 hours to do my d30 which was good in my books cause i had to permit the jeep to take it there,



EDIT: i see that you already got it done,
