    Hey i need a rear end . I currently have a 12 bolt with 4.56 geers and a locker.... and it is starting to go.....I found a guy that has a rebuild 10 bolt with 4.56 he sand blsted painted and rebuilt 4500 miles ago then replaced it with d60. he wants 400.00 for it.... what are everyones thoughts... I have called around and all the shops want a minamum of 400 in labor to rebuild plus parts another 250 - 350 ..... i need some guidance here..... I know the 10 bolt is not as strong but i dont plan on doing any heavey wheeling for awhile (2 3 years) this is going to be my daily driver (street queen) until my wife gets a mini van in a few years.........

    That seems like a decent price for a 4.56 geared 10 bolt. Definately cheaper than having one rebuilt. Have a locker/LSD in it?

    Sounds like a good deal....if it is in good shape....
    Keep in mind.....lockers run at least $250! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    im 17, i did the swap mostly myself, 10 bolt to 12 bolt, rear end, the brakes are intererchangeable, brake lines too, just use yoru old brakes if the new stuff is [censored], i had to, u-bolts are same size, axle tube is same size, you need a new U-joint, 12 and 10 bolt sizes arent the same cap size, i had to buy a new cover for mine, a nice shiney chrome one from napa /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif, it was a fun time, the 10 bolts are ligheter then 12 bolts, i tell you what. me and my heavy friend had a hard time pick'n up that 12 bolt with drums and stuff like that. any how, i hope your talkin about the rear and not the front, good luck on that. tell us how it werks out /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Well I sold my 12 bolt a while back with only a few thousand miles on it since it was rebuilt for $300 or $350. It had 4.10's and an Auburn Limited slip, all new since it was rebuilt. So the one you found isn't too bad of a deal, but sometimes you can find a really good deal too.
