Where to get gears installed in Ont??

Im located outside of London Ontario and i just got my lift and 35's on and im looking to regear my differentials. Only thing is im not sure where i wanna get new gears installed. I was thinking about going to my dealer but id like to see if anyone can recommend an installer within a 3 hour drive.

Cheers Joel

I had my mech. (Doug) at Active Green & Ross install my TruTrac. I had an issue with it and they fixed it no charge. I go to the one near Oxford & Wonderland...right next to the Oakridge Ford dealer.


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!

Gear swaps are not cheap by the time your done buying parts and paying for an install your probably looking around 1500 - 2000 to re-gear both front and rear diff's

thats what i figured might as well bite the bullet and get them both done at the same time

You'd be fine going to either of the suggestions mentioned above. I had my Mustang tuned and worked on by Jay Misener and I've had work done to all my vehicles at AGR on Oxford. Never had a problem at either one!

Pricewise AGR charged me 3 hrs labour iirc. The carrier/gears/fluid came to about $1000.
