The labor to have someone do it at the dealer is likely more than the sensor.

I have never had to pay or inquire so I dont know though.

All you have to do is pull tire, remove caliper bracket bolts (do not remove just the caliper, remove whole assembly with the (2) 21MM head bolts), slide rotor off then you can see the sensor recessed in to the Unit bearing flange. I would do this and see if there is a bolt in there and if its tight.

Wholesale parts direct to the shop, are about 250$ for a regear. SO when 4wheel parts, Genwronx, JXX, etc charge you 1200-1800$ for a regear its like they are profiting about 150-200$ PER HR. Its crazy.
Well I think you hit the nail on the head. And I'd guess that the price ends up being somewhat understandable given the high overhead costs some of these shops have and the level of skill a technician needs in order to re-gear proficiently every time.

I checked the sensor. Its connected. There's a bracket that seems to be tweaked that would hold it in place above the axle u joint. Could the sensor have hit that and caused it to fail? I heard the sensor can be found in auto parts stores?

Hell
Probably straightened axles in the eqyptians stone carts back in pyramid days....

All in good fun he's older and don't bring him a dirty axle he will send you to clean it before he touches ot...

He is a artist with custom axle housings, tubes and building em from scratch as well as a master and getting them straight as a arrow.

Keep in mind I took it in for a left front broken axle u joint. It was under warranty along with the axle. They replaced the complete axle shaft and u joint at no charge. That's when we found out the locker was also damaged. I wasn't planning on RE gearing until closer to Christmas but beings I had to put a new locker in right now I figured I'd save a little labor having the front gears done right now. Well after it was all installed they tore the front back down because of a clicking noise. They suspected a defective bearing so they took the new ones out and inspected them and didn't see any issue with them but went ahead and reinstalled it again with another new set of bearings just incase. It was still clicking. That's when they figured out that the right side axle tube is bent. They think the clicking is because the axle is in a binding a little.

Stan told me he could get me a currie housing for $2,100 and stick all these parts in it but I guess Currie's Dana 44 housing only excepts JK parts. So then he says we could go with a teraflex housing and stick all my parts in it. I'd be out the door for $6,200.00 going that route. I don't know anything about the teraflex housings.

I'm just trying to figure out if there's any other options? Been surfing the web and not coming up with anything but a headache.
You could also grab a bare 44 housing and have jpi put some brackets on
