Neither, really. Obtaining a new one is the best move. If you cannot do that, I would go used; I'm not familiar with many folks who have successfully rebuilt one of these transfer cases in shop, usually based on the level of damage found to the internal components.

It's not difficult if you have the right equipment and access. You don't want to be lifting this out without support from a transmission or component jack. $500 isn't too bad. A new one is probably $1300. Just change the oil first on the replacement unit. And make sure you have at least a little bit of a guarantee just in case you install it and it's bad out of the wrapper...

Could be for the hubs? Not entirely sure...
