I recently took my all wheel drive 08 Chevy Express G1500 work van to the mechanic and he said I need the front differential reapired/replaced.  From the research I have done so far this is looking like a very pricey repair.  My question is, is it possible to remove the front differential and replace front axle and associated parts with standard front end parts?

This really sucks!! Mine went out too and the trucks are not the same. The trucks have an 8.25" and the vans have a 7.25" differential. The salvage yards are charging $1800 for a used differential due to them being so rare. Here's what you could do. The chevy blazer s10's and trailblazers have the same internal parts. Buy a used differential, take it apart and install all the parts into your differential.
