Those who offered helpful info.....thank you.
hi ********, dont defame my lastname again.
1. you wanted to change the diff in your car yourself and we advised you against it if you didnt have the proper tools and experience.
2. you complained to us that your local mechanic charges too much, why would you complain to us how much he charges? we cant change any of that.
3. then you wanted again to know how easy it would be to swap the locker and we again informed you that it would be dificult.
4. A "working" diff is different from one with a freshly built diff with new frictions, new seals, and new bearings.
5.I answered your question nicely the first time. We are unable to tell you how much work is to be done on your existing diff, since we stuck to the topic. There are a load of variables, including how much wear is on the existing trac lok, if you want to use a stiffer load spring, if you want to use new gears, if there is abnormal wear on the existing bearings.
6. All of us attempted to give you honest and credible answers and info and you blatently chose not to listen....which makes me wonder why you asked in the first place, if you dont want to use any of the info we provided, then why ask. A very good write up in the tech articles is available on how to swap out a pumpkin.
7. So, unless you are willing to do your own research with both a prospective mechanic doing the work and any necessary overhauling that would be needed on the prospective diff with thee trac lok, including your own installation, dont get upset at an answer or answers if they dont match your own hypothetical pipedream, then tough ****.
How much can I expect to pay for a trac loc rear to fit my 97 4.6 bird? I am in Canada. - That was your first post. Now, your best bet would be to call the shop that would do the work, your post was vague, so we had to guess as to what your intentions were.
