YES, Well we specialize in your 68-70 BUICK ONLY rear diff.

There are only 2 aftermarket sets for your rear 3.42 and 3.64. We pretty much sell them exclusively and provide great tech help on ALL rear end work.

First we need to know what ratio you are working with in your diff? 2.56 2.73 2.93 3.23 3.42 3.64 3.90 or higher.

THEN we can start to guide you through.

The carrier you received is a PONTIAC carrier...Jegs and Summit are NOT differential experts so they can only go by what you tell them you need.

We have aftermarket carriers that cover the 2.56 2.73 2.93
we have aftermarket carrier that covers 3.23 3.42
We also can MODIFY a aftermarket carrier for the Original 3.64 3.90 and steeper gear also.

Start with step one WE NEED THE gear ratio. :) Jim

Thanks and hope to help.
