So what is the problem & why would you want to change the whole "stump"?

Dont forget to check Ebay, they have some of these differentials for under 350 shipped. Some with relatively low miles.

They even have a new one... at 4200 bucks!

I can't answer that question. Physically it will fit, whether or not it will actually work will depend on whether or not your donor car and your car share the same RPO code for axle gearing. They both most have the same gears. I believe it's either FR3 or FR9, I don't remember what the gearing is for them, but I do know they must match.

It should be in the trunk, on the left hand side, behind the panel where the air pump connecter is. Its on the door. If its not there, then check the same panel on the other side. If again no panel, you will have to contact a GM dealer with the VIN and ask them. On the mini-van, I have no idea. If you have the VIN, you could do the same process.

Its also why I recommend only getting the part needed from your exact vehicle. All rendezvous have the same diff, all Azteks have the same diff, not sure what they did on the min-vans.
