And what would you charge for one with 4.10s? I'd do it myself but living in an apartment makes it hard. Man I cant wait until I get a house.

I charge $250 in labor to build a cast iron case and $300 to build an aluminum case. I insist on solid pinion spacers and FORD pinion seals. I do have the tools to spread the aluminum cases. Change all bearings and seals and measure pinion depth of OEM gears. I charge an additional $100 to set up non ford gears, IE motive,Richmond,etc. I refuse to mess with those cheap asian gears from ebay. They are absolute junk and will not operate quietly no matter how perfect the pattern.

LOL I was just thinking to myself, one of the very few advantages to living alone is I can use my kitchen sink as a parts washer, my table as an assembly point..

sorry for the off topic remark, just couldn't resist.

Yea, Alan or Teeps can do it very well from what I hear. Might look into what shipping would be, they are pretty heavy.

Yeah, with a wife and 7 month old I can't use the kitchen. The wife gets mad cause I have laundry room, our closet, and the babies closet full of enough tools to stock a small garage. I've really been looking into doing it myself. I want my 4.10s back. And I prefer the cast iron, and shipping on that would be horrible.

Cast iron trac lok differential is about 100lbs the limit for ups to ship. Aluminum is about 90lbs.

I get a little break too I'm sure I can get it shipped for $75, might be cheaper to ship it via R&L carriers as well.

I feel like I have highjacked this thread. We will talk more while I'm deployed. My plan is to have plenty of parts to play with when I get back.

Really that little of a difference? THe cast iron case felt a lot heavier than the aluminum. I know you are picky about those gears and I see why now cause if the depth measurement is some unknown number it makes it hell to get it right. My diff is still running nicely and quietly after a few thousand miles so I guess it was a fine build. I used yukon gears from a few years back before they went to crap and the rebuild kt from SCP.com.

To the OP the only other choice you have is to get a local trust worth shop do it. Im lucky I have one of the best local shops around that built mine. They are highly recommended for their quality work. With that said if the shop doesnt do this work on a regular basis then Id stay away from them. I read some bad stories about diffs being built wrong on here. Bottom line its not worth it to have it done twice.
