heres the deal in short.... gears...... 1) buy used/ new, wheres the cheapest 2) $550.00 4.88 with new ring,pinion,instal kit and carrior to my door from 4wheelpartwholesellers. 3) 4.88 or 5.88's herd the 5.88's are 20% weaker. 4) Or buy locker & gears for rear and do front in 1 month. 5) Looking at the Quick Lok so far start at $283 for the rear 12 bolt. Any ideas on brands/companies? I run a mild 396 CBB a 400 trany with a 203 and 38.5 TSL's 12 bolt rear, danna 44 front. In the last 18 months I've changed tire sizes three time and ditched the 10 bolt front and rear, good, then got a 12 bolt rear and dana 44 up front, beter, but 3.73 gears and no locker sucks, since this is a drive way ormament for so long I want it done. Got the cash but need buying help, and yes I'm obsessed with blazers and know/ think I know alot so I have a general idea but not to shure what to get yet. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif Any one selling this stuff let me know, uh soon too. To make things more complicated I called a yard today that said any axel out of a full size is only $150 complete /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I'm goin this weekend to verify, I'll let ya'll know!
