I have noticed a noise from the rear end of my 1994 Fleetwood. Once I get up to about 35 mph I can hear a deep whirring sound that continues as I drive up until I slow down.
I went to a mechanic who says that I have a bad bearing and that my options are to rebuild the rear end at around 900 dollars or to replace the rear end with another from the junk yard.

If I take the junk yard option, what are some things that I may need to be aware of ?
Are there some other rear ends from GM vehicles that I could look for that will be a good replacement ?

I have tried searching the forum for similar posts but didn't find any. Also the car has about 170K miles on it and runs great but I know that wear and tear is taking its toll and I don't know how well the previous owners took care of the car.
Thank you in advance for any and all help and info.

Also how can I tell which gear ratio do I have ?
