Required again, preferably 3.15. Do have a 3.38 that I would swap or sell out of a 330ci auto ( paid $350 ), may also consider swap for the 2.93 that's in it now.

Yeah, I noticed the difference, was going to check if the crown and pinion are the same (?). Basically that's all I need. May even just get them new or made.

You removed your diff and drained it just to measure the backlash for someone???
Aren't you nice!

I'm nice enough to admit I don't know the k's of this diff, and honest enough that I want to be sure of its condition

Diff was out, only took 10 minutes of my life to measure and photograph, least I could do to assist a fellow fanatic
