Friend needs help

I have a friend with a 2000 GMC 1500. Its lifted some(not sure how much). He blew his rear up today The driveshaft just spins. I need to know what rears will fit in his truck. I dont mind a little work to get it in but nothing major.

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Friend needs help

Did you mean to type "gears" or do you mean something else?

Re: Friend needs help

I think that this repair will be major. It sounds like you will have to replace the differential. Do a search for the types of diffs available on google or something. That is where you can get prices. Install and set up will be pricey. If the truck is lifted now maybe the time to regear. If this truck is used offroad and driven in 4wd you will have to regear the front as well.

Re: Friend needs help

considering cost of new gears and might be cheaper to buy a new rear axle from a junk yard. just make sure the gear ratio matches the front end ratio
