I purchased a 246 transfer case out of a 2002 Chevy with 20k for $450
to put in. I figured if I was buy all the clutch parts, shim kit, and
seal kit, I would have $350 in the rebuild and it would still have
125k on the bearings, gears, and other moving parts. My truck has
125,000 miles on it.
I called around on replacing the pinion gear bearing and side bearings
in the front diff and they qouted me around $750-$800. If it comes to
that I think I will do the same thing and pick up a low milage front
axle for $400 to $500. I think I would be better off as far as expense
and better all around equipment when finished.
I'll let you know how it's going once I get the other transfer case
in. I'll check the diff at that time also.
Thank you for your help,
