Now $1000+ rear end rebuild

The differential gears were badly worn the mechanic said. I had to order new complete sets of gears (ring gear and pinion set & inner/spider gear set) plus a complete bearing set.

And it STILL didn't come with a freaken crush sleeve!! I had to call up Napa today to place an order.. which won't come in until Tuesday they said. I ordered TWO crush sleeves for good measure. I can return the extra if it's not needed. Better to be safe than sorry.

Cost is well over $1000 now. But at least it'll be all new and should be good for the life of the van now.
