New bearings, carrier, etc. with professional rebuilt and checking the gears for third member = $400.00 (yeah, I know, it's expensive - but, at least, I get to keep what little hair I have left).

My time to install the third member = 2.5 hours (I know it took a little longer than necessary - but, with this cold I'm fighting and stopping to clean up the mess afterwards…..).

Ok here it comes………

Accelerating to, and maintaining, 80 m.p.h. on the interstate with a "smooth as silk ride" and no hmmmmmmmmm coming out of the rear end = priceless (I just can't stop grinning)!

I'm glad that my "third member" is still in great shape. That is one hell of an expensive rebuild!
Couldn't you have just bought some Viagra?

I didn't want to go the drug route. One thing I neglected to say was the $400.00 is the cost breakdown for that one item out of the six million dollars. In other words, a "bionic" third member. And with that pinion shaft "stiffened up" now it should never break under hard *ahem* acceleration.

Oh so close to "the shop".

Zonie, 4 bills isn't bad. I got that much in mine and I rebuilt it myself. by the time you consider the cost of gears, bearings, aluminum pinion support, spool, shims, gasket, Yoke, etc..etc 4 bills is cheap, to be honest I have about $600.00 in mine.
Ain't it great to have smooth running gears though

I'm assuming this was an "Open" rear?
