Used Parts Opinion

Whats everyones opinion on purchasing a used set of rear gears or differential? I've never really bought used parts before, are these the kind to stay away from buying used. THanks for any help!

Depends on who had the gears, if he raced the car or not, mileage also counts.

you can buy NEW for a bit more. You should go for 50% at the most of new gears. new ones cost $175.

Shoot for $85 when buying used.

if there's no chips, they should be fine.

You can also get them from junked Rangers.

What kind of trak-lok?

If it's a FR unit, it's probably going to have to be rebuilt.

I'd ditch it and get a Detroit Locker.
