Stick with 1.80. Change rear gears if a gear change is required. Much cheaper.

It probably has a 1.82 set. Don't use those. I can sell you a new mid range priced set if needed. And any other trans parts.

x2 dont use the 1.82 gear.a new 1.76{stock} may last a while but a good 1.80 would be best IMO.
