Post Looking for suggestion of rearend

After looking for a saginaw 3 speed with overdrive for the saginaw 4 speed conversion, I've decided maybe I could just replace the rearend in my 86 Mazda extend cab to get better gas milage on the highway. I currently have another saginaw from the junkyard that was from a vega that I think has a gearing of 3.50/2.47/1.65/1.00 and my current rearend has 3.91. I would be cruising about 65 - 75 mph but I would also like a rearend with limited slip.
This would be a project with a budget of 300 dollars with maybe the cost of a drive shaft shortening. I aready setup $250 fund for a edelbrock 600 cfm performer carb with electric choke. Now it would be a rebuilt one from summit racing for 185 dollars.

Any suggestions on a rearend from the junkyard that will fit with little mods. The Mazda is the same width as a S-10 or very close.
