    Gotta gloat. :D
    500 got me this:
    <10k old rebuilt Sub 14bff w/ new 3.73's (existing front ratio), all bearings, and a Detroit.
    Oh, and those Nationals that were built for a Sub.
    The KYB's are done though.

    And the springs are Nationals...(as opposed to some POS off the shelf springs)

    500 for just a 14 wouldn't be too good a deal, but with a NEW bearings, NEW gears, a Detroit, and a set of National springs seemed like a good deal to me.

    Junkyard 14BFF with open Diff - $125 - $250
    Detroit Locker $420 - $520
    Master Bearing Kit $100 - $140
    Labor $200 - $400
    National Spring $600

    You did better than 50 cents on the dollar.
    Looks like a great deal to me.

    I just pulled one out of a Van at Ecology Auto on a half price Saturday and it cost me $105 and a few hours, I was pretty stoked to get that. Always fun to get a deal. I have a garage full of deals - like money in the bank!?
