That one will work fine, but you should probably ask the seller how many miles it has on it. If it has more than 20-30 thousand on it, I'd recommend a rebuild. You can find the rebuild kits all over ebay.

BUT.....if it needs a rebuild (roughly 20,000-30,000 miles) then just buy a new one....i got my Ford Racing limited slip (same as in the auction) for $215 shipped from Summit....
