More details needed. For starters what problem are you trying to solve and what axle are we talking about?

Save your money and swap something else in. The Toyota 8 makes a good doorstop and not much else.

so add up the cost of ring&pinion, bearings, seals, carrier if you arent using a stock one and then plan the cost of a dial indicator with mag base, good torque wrench and a bearing/race install&removal kit. thats what it will end up costing to do it yourself. I have the tools and the ability to do it though i have an affordable place locally that i choose to have do it as i learned i didnt enjoy it after the first few.

Something to factor in is the cost of doing it wrong. If you get your first gear setup correct the first time it will save you money every time you do it in the future.

If you do it wrong and destroy a set of gears it's going to be a couple hundred bucks more.

Around $250 labor plus parts.... so $500+

What gear ratio are you trying to go to?
