    Just got an '87 Blazer about 3 weeks ago. I've already got the lift and new 33s tires and wheels(not installed yet). I checked the gears and it has 3.08s in it. I was thinking about goung with 3.73s, but after reading the post "time for gears" I think I might want to go with 4.11s. How much am I looking to spend?

    i have found that the magic number is $1000.00. i know it sucks but i havent found a way around it. figure 300 for the gears, 200 for install kits, very consertive 250 per axle to have shop install. this is based on 10 bolts with out shipping on the parts. sucks doesnt it. best bet is to find decent solid useable matched ratio axles to install, but they better be in good shape because brakes and ball joints cost quite abit if theyre buggered. others have said they have paid less but i dont know how they do it.

    i know a guy around here that does them for 200 an axle, i got my gears, install kit and locker for 650. so grand total of 1050 isn't bad. i don't know where your located but if you want i can give you his shop name.
