Where to get a differential

The best place to pickup a used differential is a salvage yard. You can get a brand new one from the Dealership, but it'll cost about $1200. Used differentials from Salvages yards cost about $200-700. (depends on Ratio, age, mileage, which salvaged yard you call...). 3.46 diff are by far the cheapest. They're available from most Automatic tranny e46s.
