Default Replacing/rebuilding whole transmission

So I brought my car to a shop to replace my center differential due to clunking while turning into parking spots or doing tight turns/circles in general. The shop told me they are replacing/rebuilding the whole transmission. My question here is, does that actually replace the center differential as well? Thought it would only consider the front differential? (Sorry for my lack of poor searching skills) Thanks in advance!

If they replace or repair the whole transmission, they should do the front, centre, and rear doffs as well, no?

parts are around $500 new from what I've found online. I need to replace mine as well but am expecting to be able to adress the diff assembly and bearings only, not the complete trans. is the shop a random mechanic or have u had your car in with them before?

Shop that is in collab with a small time dealership I had bought the car from. Waited a good month should be done this week. Was in there just to replace the center diff, but I guess they went ahead and said they will do a rebuilt tranny.

Read, flat rate charge. We are going to fix it and take the rest for Phil R. Wallets.

i'm having a similar issue. I recently dropped my car off for what i thought was a bearing noise and the shop originally said that i need to replace the entire transmission. After I asked a few more questions they said that they could rebuild it, but they could not upgrade any parts. Admittedly, i'm not the most knowledgeable car owner, but I get the feeling this shop doesn't know what they are talking about. If i'm going to replace my transmission does anyone have any advice on where to buy a solid upgrade for a 2002 WRX?
