MY NEW RICHMOND DIFF GEARS

Hello, just wanted to share my experience with my new Richmond Gears, went from the OEM 3.25 to 3.73, and I have an L99. Just left 2EDGE Performance and just wanted to thank everyone there, Chris is the Man over there and I knew when I order the new gears I wanted no one else to install it but him it turned out great. No noise and smooth and alot faster speed and torq. I love it and so glad I did this.

Also wanted to thanks APEX whom I bought them from great customer service and fast shipping, would buy from again. I had a little fun driving back home.. WOOOPS.... Even though I was told to take it easy....

Wow I thought he was putting them in next week. I want to see how it felt before and after. Now I may have to wait to do minds to see how it feels.

I think he means when taking the photos. The people are blurry because they weren't posing for the pics. They were moving/working. That is why the inanimate objects are in focus but the people aren't. That is my take on the question.

It looks like you were on a vibrator when you took them.

Thanks for your order and the mention. Gears really crank up the fun factor.

Depends on where you get them done but it should be around there when you add in the cost of the gears themselves. Mine were around $800 to install not including the cost of the gears. I had a couple other things done like adding the JRE posi mod and the billet caps. I had to send them off to get them done. Obviously, money was saved because the shop didn't have to take the differential out or put it back in. Regardless of the road you take to get gears, get differential bushings installed at the same time. You will want them sooner or later, might as well get it done in one fell swoop.
