71 olds rear axle needed

I need an axle that fits into a 71 old cutlass S. If possible if i could find one that has limited slip that would be great.

I have a line on an 8.5" 10-bolt out of a '71 Buick GS350. It has an open differential with 3.31 gears. It's pretty clean, since it's out of a Florida car. I won't have access to it until the holidays pass. Let me know if that's something you'd be interested in. Thank's.

I have a couple but shipping would be expensive. You might try looking through Craigslist to see if you can find something close enough to pick up. I believe the 1968-72 GM A-bodies would all bolt up although the length of the driveline may vary between them. The 1964-67 will also fit but the springs were bolted to the housings those years so that would need modified. Some thoughts to consider. John

I have an axle in my car that I want to get rid of so I can install the one that's sitting on the floor of my garage. I'm not all that far from you. Maybe we can work something out.
It's a 3.08 open, but you can get a power trax locker for it relativley cheap and convert it.
