8.8 31 Spline Rear End

So i think my rear end is going cuz it whines when im driving. I already changed the lube not to long ago. Im not sure how long its been making the noise because i had my exhaust off for about a year. How much am i looking at to get a 31 spline unit? I found one on ebay but the guy wants $818 for it. Here it is:

Is that a "good" price?

Sounds high to me. Get and explorer one and modify it. Lots of them around.

Of course it does have the Torsen diff. That's worth probably 300 to 400 isn't it?

oh and i dont care about the limited slip because i would throw a locker into it
also im not sure what i want to do with the truck. i might sell it and i might keep it. i wanted the 31 spline just in case i keeped it but if i didnt, at least the problem is solved
