Jeep in question is a ZJ. Also, this needs to be done by Aug 25th since it will become a commuter vehicle then.
My dana 35 howls when driving above 45. I brought it in to a shop to have them look and they said my bearing were all bad. Quoted me at 1015.00. This seemed stupidly high to me. I thought I could find a dana 44a but have had absolutely no luck, or if I do find one it is 3 hours away and the wrong gear ratio.
I was looking online and found this kit- http://eastcoastgearsupply.com/i-126...it-master.html
I figure this would have everything needed to fix up my issues. If this kit is so cheap though, where did the 1015 come from? 900 in labor to install bearing?
Does anybody know how long this job should take on book time? If it is not too long I might just rebuild the dana 35 for the simplicity of that situation. I run a 31 inch tire and will probably only ever go that high.
Also wanted to mention this to see if it is an option. A dana super 35 kit. This includes all bearing and everything and a locker. Making the axle stronger than that dana 44a.
