I have assumed that the axle housing for the G80 with the 8.5" ring gear is larger than the housing for the 8.0 inch ring-geared open differential. Am I mistaken? Is the axle housing the same, whether you have an open diff or the G80? I ask because I have an axle housing from my 2003 Envoy that had an open diff--I sold the pumpkin but still have the housing and axles and calipers and mounts. I was going to scrap everything, but if they are the same, then...:undecidedYeah you can get just a G80 installed in your TB a competent axle shop can do it in maybe a day or in 1/2 a day or so. Like a shop here in Vegas called Dave's Driveline deals only with axles and well driveline parts and they quoted me before about 300-400 for everything to install one in my TB.
