I've confirmed that the AWD rear differential is the same as the TX diff.

To do this, I purchased a used differential (P/N 29066176) from a local wrecking yard and dissected the gear and ELSD sections alongside the same sections on the diff removed from my TX. The internals and gear ratios are the same. I reassembled it, swapped the control unit with programming from original TX diff, installed it in my TX, and drove it for 2 months.

The used diff had over 70k miles on it and I decided to swap it out for a new Buick diff P/N 22896610 that I was able to find new for $999. It is now installed in my vehicle and all working fine. All Systems Go - as my car tells me each time I turn on the key :-)

Hi Kevin,

I just wanted to know if you happen to know what is the gesr ratio of the differential between pinion gear and crown gear, or at least if you know the number of teeth of each or have picture that shows clearly the number of teeth of each?

That would help me so much!

Thanks
