    I am having the same problem here in Oklahoma. Noone wants to change out the diff. in my C5 without charging an arm and a leg. The cheapest I've found is $390. I'm sure you could take it all apart and do it yourself but you have to set the backlash. That's my problem. If you dont get it right it will whine bad. Also since you have 2.73's I have heard you have to have a spacing kit.

    I wish it was only $390. down here. More like $2800 and that is just the labor. If you find out anything let me know. and i'll do the same.
