Default '97 open differential and driveshaft

I took this out of a '97 I found at the local junkyard, had ~119K miles on it. The axles were the last thing I pulled, and based on everything I saw on the car I thought it was a package that had the LSD. Apparently I was mistaken. I do not have axles for it, as I couldn't get to them because of the wheel locks present. Would be great for someone selling a bare Torsen or picking up a cheap RX7 clutch unit. Asking $220 OBO, located in Ellicott City, MD

Probably outrageous, but I'll try to get a quote for you. Big and heavy, I'd guess $100 at a minimum.

You might want to try getting it shipped via Grayhound.

I shipped a diff (with no propshaft) via DHL a couple of years ago. Built a wooden crate around it and everything. I don't remember the exact cost, but it was not unreasonable.

Mike, I'll keep looking into it. Not at home right now to box it up (Joe, your suggestion of the wood frame is good and exactly what I'd do) or get exact measurements, but a rough guess of 48" as the longest dimension and 100lbs as the weight has a Greyhound estimate of $103. Thing with Greyhound is that it only goes to the bus depot or whatever. Looking at your address, Flint would be the closest (Grand Rapids had the same price).

That being said it'd also get to you in less than 24 hours, which is pretty cool given the size, weight, and cost.

Thanks, browning. How'd you have that boxed up, and do you recall how much the whole thing weighed?
