Gear Swap

Question, I'm in Lafayette Indiana and can't find a reasonable price to get my gears installed. Anyone know of a good place close to me. Thanks for any help. Not looking for a cut rate job just think $500 is steep for 2 hrs work

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that's an absurd amount, a decent amount of work has to go into installing gears

if that is a price with parts, it isn't bad. If that is just labor, that is terrible.
I pay $250 for gears installed if I bring the parts.

That was labor only. Dealership wanted $600. I do know that the shop that quoted $500 is a top notch shop so it would be a quality job.

I charge 8 hours to install a set of gears, which at my dealerships labor rate comes to $600. That's labor only. So $500 sounds right to me, if (and that's a huge if) they are done properly. I may do some things other guys don't, which is why I charge the extra time.
