If you take it to a shop it should be anywhere from $150-$200 a side. If you get a friend to do it for you, an axle (after core) from a autoparts store should only be around $60 or so each axle.

yeah they are easy, pop that sucker outa the trans, undo the bolt, get a rubber hammer and walla your done. Since you are going to drain the trans fluid i would also change that while you are down there, very simple also.

Well I can see why you think fabrication is "where it's at" when you're not making the kind of profit a dealer does.

But yeah, 50-75 a side seems more than reasonable to me.
