I have a 91 k5. Thanks in advance.
good think you didn't ask how much to have your rearend rebuilt cuz that would sound like a personal problem...

The going rate around here (AZ) is $250 per axle in labor
Plus the cost of gears, you were thinking of re-gearing as well right?
That is just differential work, gears, inner bearings, etc...
If you want a drum-to-drum rebuild that could cost around $1000 per axle

A few years ago my rearend went. Actually the the Govlock exploded, and my dad had to get the rearend rebuilt. With a new Auburn Limited Slip it cost about $1000.
My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.
Put a re-man stock under my 91 sub about 18 months ago.. $1000K, over the counter. Some assembly required! (let alone the 250 mile round trip to fetch it!)
Bet you had fun lifting the axle over the counter
Naw, that one was cake compared to the 14FF!! (ROFL)!
Here in The tall corn state the lowest quote for labor on setting up the r&p I have found is $250 and as high as $800. If you are doing a 14FF they are easy, I am doing mine, but the ones that use carrier shims and pinions shims suck. I figured $150 for a 12 ton shop press and $100 for the pinion depth tool..there is the cost in labor alone.
