As I mentioned , about half of the guts of the tranny need to be removed. Then you remove a snap ring and the output shaft slides out the rear of the tranny.

You slide in a 2WD shaft, reinstall the snap ring and remainder of parts.

you are then done.

You will need to purchase a 2WD tail housing too.

This require the proper gaskets and O rings to seal up the tranny too.

Cheaper $$ would depend on many things here.

ViperMonster800 I'd like to say that it would be better just to get a 700-R4 4x4 tranny out of a wrecked Blazer or something and put it in your 2WD application car because the 700s are great transmissions but the standards are notorious for giving out when they become under load (a lot of towing) after a great amount of use. I don't know if your 4x4-ing will be excessive or not but I'd like to say it puts the same strain on it as it would towing. Then I'd get the correct crossmember (if the old one doesn't work) and then find the correct dimensions for your "new" drive axle.

mayday3045 do you just have to remove the tail piece or do you have to start messing with the planetary gear sets.

the trans must be disassembled about 1/2 way to change the output shaft to a 2wd shaft for a 2wd application.
