Default what is the cheapest way to install bearings in my 8.8?

im real tight on cash but just bought new tires and want to replace my welded dif with a mustang five lug converted 8.8 axle so i can at least still have the trac loc feature. i have got a new pinion gear and ring gear now just need to install it. new bearings are 100 roughly in the bay area new. i can afford that however im getting labor quotes at 225 to simply install bearings anyone have a cheaper alternative? im located in santa clara ca 95050

Have you checked the width difference on that axle compared to the factory 8.8?

Id bet it is narrower then a ranger, so it will actually be worse.
