I know it's a longshot, but have you thought of rebuilding the axle they have? I only ask because I picked up a 2004 AWD that had bad carrier bearings and I decided to rebuild the whole shebang.

New gears, a master install kit, new axle bearings, a torsen limited-slip diff and all the tools I needed to do it myself came in just under $700 total.

I used www.ronsmachiningservice.net - they had the lowest prices, and if I wasn't set on the torsen rear (my Eaton locker looked worn out), I could've done it a helluva lot cheaper.

Thought about it but I was hoping not to spend anywhere near that on a GM 10-bolt. I found complete axles for 400-500 dollars with 100,000 miles or less. I guess I will just have to bite the bullet. Thx.
