Advice needed on diff rebuild places

Looking for wisdom from past experiences on best place to get my diff rebuilt.
Pretty sure it is a 3.08 10 bolt salisbury in my 253 hj premier wagon. I get a regular knocking sound, not really a whine. Been going on for over a year or so now, but im now worried it will suddenly fail.

Any advice welcome.
I am in Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

Holden Engine 179X

Hi have a 179x installed in my HR Holden Sedan when I bought it. Just wondering whether they were sold as an option from the factory to the dealership? Also how much are they currently worth? Thanks

HZ firewall transplant

Hi
My HZ (pano) has a firewall too far gone. I have a HQ (sedan) donor car with clean firewall. I'm looking at unpicking the spotwelds in the floor just in front of the rear console bracket which looks easy enough but I'm a bit more scared about where to cut the sills. I also need the A pillars as the HZ is knackered so I'll need to cut that almost at the top. Anyone out there have tips for me or pics of doing it? I've unpicked cowl and plenum from a WB so have done that before and have them saved as good replacements.
So far I am aware;
