Default Anyone in Sterling Heights install gears?

I have a Dana 30 that I want to install a set of 4.56's and an ARB in. Pulled it from my old housing, bearings should still be good, just needs an install kit and the hole drilled in the diff for the airline. Anybody local that can help me out?

I need to order some replacement parts for the ARB and then it will be ready to go.

Ring and pinion shop wants almost $600. I'm willing to do it myself for that much, I've done them before, I'm just being lazy.

Kevin did my last set, don't have the time to take it there though. Lol

Excuses excuses, I know.

I hear his prices are all over. I went in there a few years ago and asked about setting up an axle, I had it out, and it was just a bear housing, he said $250, my neighbor went in there about 1-2 years ago asked him about doing the gears in his 65 chevelle, he said $800 just for the labor, no parts, someone I know had their JKU regeared there last year, $1000 for labor for both front and rear.

is the axle still in the Jeep, or loose? TrannyTom isn't too far away, if he has time (and if it is loose)

I don't know who Nick is. I did them myself, not hard, just a little time consuming.

It was loose when I did them, the last set I did was under the Jeep, never again, out of the Jeep, it isn't bad.
