I just weighed a 12 bolt axle assembly for the purpose of shippingit and it came in at 155 pounds with no brakes. I think that UPS can handle anything up to 100 pounds. The housing and gears without the shafts came in at 125 pounds. So it does not look like UPs can so much good for a housing.
I shipped a complete 10 bolt 3.42 posi and turbo 400 via Yellow Freight. They both exceeded the UPS max weight. They put them together on a pallet and metal banded them. I think it cost around $100 to go from Kentucky to Florida. I saved some money by picking them up at the local Yellow Freight terminal as opposed to door to door delivery.
