re-gearing a D-60

looking at a parts truck tomorrow for the d-60. i need 3.55s and it has 4.10s. my question to all is has anyone done this, how expensive it it to get done or can it be done myself. i don not have micrometers to set them up like i think is involved.

just looking for others experiences!

You can do it for about $300, a shop won't be cheap to get it done, just match up the new shims with the old ones and get some marking compound to make sure it looks good when you spin it around a few times and your be good

Erik, Frank. Why don't you guys just swap? You're practically right next to each other.
