New rear done by a good shop is 3k more at time of sale. So that is where my advice is coming from.
I have 200K race cars dropped off at my shop and they get treated exactly the same as a guy with a rusted out Camaro. Both car's get the same quality work and both customers are treated with respect. As far as gear work... There is NO way I could spend 3K for diff work on that car. Way out of hand..

If the OP has some mechanical knowledge and some patience he can do it and try and save some money.
