Well, the price usually depends on location/other work/type of Dana ie: 30/35/44/44HD/60-

My total of $1957.00 bucks, included install of Synergy (zerk) ball joints-

So I've heard of prices from 1200 bucks to 3000 bucks and that high one usually included install a set of LS/lockers-

Check around your area for some good suspension/race shops prices !


Good luck

Very high. Jeep Master's in Austin did mine for 1850 with the speedo gear swapped as well. Of course this was back in 2009 but, if its over 2,000 for just a re gear than you're getting hosed.

Soccer six in the mix.

Cost me about $2500 just in tools to do it myself.

Seriously, that sounds a little high. I'd charge about $800 to do both front and rear axle myself at this point (provide your own R&P / overhaul kit).

Damm sounds like you’re being over charged in the vicinity of 1k. Definitely check around for something more reasonable. Any 4x4 clubs in your area; might want to ask a couple of them as to where the best deals are including reputation.

holy crap, yeah I'd stay away from there for service at the very least. That's like $300/hr.

WAY over priced, typical for 4 Wheel Parts. There is a Jeep club in Houston with about 600 members. I'm sure someone in the group could probably host a wrench/gear party for beer, provided you supply the parts.

EDIT: look up Houston Jeep People

2008 2-dr Rubicon, auto,
RK 2.5" Max Travel, Rancho 9000XL shocks, 37" Nittos, 5.38's, RR skids, Warn VR8000-S.
RIPP Gen 2 Stg 2 Supercharger.
Political Correctness offends me.
