They are jacking me around, no i dont think they have looked at it , they said they found a used one then 5 days later said it was a LS ver and wouldent work, and that they will keep looking .. a week when by and i called them .. they said they found "the parts" and it will only cost 1500, another week goes by they said there 2 guys down so it will be another week. week goes by .. i call ( i asked them to please update me aka call me?) they said they were sent a transmission and not a rear end... im thinking they sure shipping things around it must be costing them a bit..so they have had it for over a month now and still no time, they said another week. When i dropped the truck off i asked if they need me to help find the parts. they said "oh no i only get parts from people i know" and assured me he would track it down. i paid the 1500 already so im pretty much committed with these guys. its very disappointing to say the least. i been combing the junk yards with in 500 mils. of me and i cant find anything. not even on ebay.Any visible damage on the ring or pinion? Busted teeth won’t screech, but a bad bearing would. Genuinely interested to know what the issue is.
Did the shop at least pull the carrier to inspect? Not sure how they can throw out a number in the thousands and not provide you with a root cause or proof. If the differential internals are failed, those can be replaced easily. Not sure if I mentioned it in your other thread, but I work on these sorts of diffs often.
Also, what’s the ratio? It’ll be stamped on the ring gear as “XX:XX” if you still have eyes on it.
