nope... however you might have to knock out the output flanges.... this is where the axle bolts in.... there are 6 bolts, however the pattern might be different

if that is the case, get a mallet and just knock them out, should take a good minute of whacking

time wise, it really shouldn't take more than an hour, start to finish (since they have a lift and air tools)

honestly you guys have no idea how easy this is with the right tools and a lift

but a shop will easily charge a couple hundred bucks for the install... no doubt
