I was at the U Pull It the same day.
I got a 7.5 Ford IRS from a 90s Cougar.  They charged me $19.99 for
the center differential and carrier and $25 each for the axles, since
they looked like FWD axles to them with CV joints and all.
So, $80 for a Ford IRS rear end.
They only charger me $43 for the 1974 VW Super Beetle hood, though.
