I went to the dealer yestarday and they want $600 for labor and $400 for parts (entire kit+ diff cover). I was set on speding more like 600-700 not 1000. I live in the north subburbs of chicago please help

Go to chicagomustangclub.com...and ask around in there or look for the vendors on their site...i called up Bob Krugen and he hooked me up with this guy in Byron... it was a far drive but it should be about half the price of what everyone else is asking...i was calling around and everyone wanted 700-1000 bucks for gears...rip off!!

I cannot recommend this guy enough:

Sullivan's High Impact Tuning & Performance -Auto repair & high performance upgrades

He's located in Plainfield, Illinois (Joliet) and I don't think I'll ever go anywhere else to have something installed. He definitely knows his Fords.

I was charged $475 for the install or something like that. You could probably try to find something even cheaper, but everywhere I went wanted a lot for the install or didn't even remotely seem like they had any idea how to do it. My 4.10 has no howling on deceleration, only a slight whine around 35-45 mph. A lot of it has to do with the rear end and the new bushings.

He also deals with SCT and a bunch of vendors, so he's good for tuning too. He did the gear install the same day.

Edit: You live in the north burbs though, this is probably 30 miles south going down I-55 from Chicago.

$475 was not including parts right? I was going to go with that guy too but he wanted 650-700 for everything and i couldnt make it out there durring the week. ive heard nothing but good things about that guy too though. I got mine done for 450 including parts from this guy in byron...im thinking about going to sullivans for a cam job...
