You already have the gears, or you're replacing the 3.73 with new ones?

What's wrong with the carrier? Are the spider gears okay? (matters for parts pricing).

I have the 3.73s and a aussie locker that I need installed in my dana 44 with all new bearings that's are needed. B/c the locker u don't need the spiders correct? And the carrier is weak b/c someone destroyed a spider gear prior

I'd say you'd be looking at $550-$600 for parts/labor, roughly.

Is this price for a rebuild kit and the install? That seems a little high to me. Considering most Master install kits are less than $200. So labor would be $350-400??

He already has the gears and locker, but I think you may have included these parts in your quote.
