The tool will be with the tape measures and levels, not sure of the exact name but you'll recognize it. Looks like a wheel with a flat base, hanging inside the degreed wheel is a pointer. The base(s) will be magnetic.
As for the $1k, that's what mine cost including the front end regear. I kept notes on what I bought and how much it cost.... big mistake!
Install kit (MORE) $270
Wheel bearings $30
Wheel seals $15
gear oil $10
Brake lines $30
extended upper shock brackets $80 (very cool add on btw)
welding rod and a new helmet $40
D30 gears and install kit were $240
axle seals $30
So, yeah it's a cool grand to do it right. If you were swapping into a 4cyl you would have avoided the front end expense I suppose.
Oh yeah, and another $10 for extra length racing studs for the 1" solid spacer I had fabbed up for the right side, gets width back to stock and help better center up that pinion.
Hey Daveinhouston.... me too!
