    Rear differential replacement

    So I found a summit on Craigslist for a good price. BUT, the rear differential "internals" need to be replaced. The guy said that it was due to incorrect shimming from the previous owner.

    Overall, how much will it cost me to replace the diff and is there any how to guide?

    I also found out that it needs a new front end diff though he doesn't know if the ring and pinion need replaced.

    He said it was 25 bucks to rebuild the whole rear differential will this be The cost for the front? I am trying to rebuild for as cheap as I can since there are other parts to be rebuilt.

    Is eBay the cheapest or is there another site

    Front and rear diffs are identical. If the damage is the same, so should be the cost. A new takeoff diff is about $50 online.
