I f'd up the bearings in my 44alum in my ZJ by driving it on a leaking seal(SKF p-o-s). Now I've got an Aussie-locker and open carrier I need to put in and swap out all the bearings. I don't have a clue how to set-up the gear pattern, I can't find shit on the web and I don't have the right tools.
Where should I go? It has to be cheap.

As a wrencher, I can agree with this statement.

I just was at IWE and they gave me an axle set for 90 bucks with ujoint and quoted me 700 for a complete rebuild on a chev rearend bearings odds and sods and labour seemed fair to me

Something to know if you didn't already is the aluminum 44 under the G Cher is an oddball all on it's own for parts it pretty much does not have anything in common with the other 44s so . . . the ausie locker and open carrier unless they came out of an aluminum 44 I do not believe you can use them in yours
