May have found a good rear diff for my car.

its out of a step 328, 3.46, 2000MY, 40,000 miles.

he described it as the "differential carrier"

this is what i need correct? it will replace my 3.15 rear diff.

thanksssssssssssss!!!

As fitting for the date and to avoid confusion, just ask if it's the whole pumpkin. :)

Seriously, when you get the entire diff. it's usually referred to as the whole pumpkin.

my goal was to get it at 450 plus shipping, i almost shat myself when he said 275, and i had to ask a bunch of questions to make sure that he has the whole thing, not jsut the casing, or mounting or anything, hence my question at the begining of this post

but it appears to be the real deal, he says it has 40k miles on it... but we will see :D its a price i couldnt pass up
