Default question about the Dana 44 in my '81

Is my carrier a 3-series carrier? Does anyone have any information on the Dana used from '80-'82. My car has 2.87 gears being an automatic. The manuals were standard with 2.72 and an optional 3.07. No one will sell me gears because I don't have the 3.07 carrier, but when I look up Dana gears in the manufacturer's catalogs they say their gears will fit 2.72-3.73 carriers and Duntov says my car comes with a 3-series carrier and will sell me any gearset 3.07 thru5.87.

I want some RPM's, do I have to find a manual transmission carrier? My gut says no

Try these guys.

The 80 - 82's are different. If you have a '79 or earlier there is no problem.
