    $500 total seems more reasonable. I read up there in the posts 500 labor? seriously? One can swap the whole diff unit in roughly 20 minutes, you don't even need to remove any wheels!

    drove the sx4 home- had the rear brakes done as well as the new differential installed. $600 total. ($225 if only 2whl or $500 4whl)

    Drove about 60 miles home and all seems back to normal.

    Going for 300,000 now! Thanks to all
