It'll be 3" thick i think if its the alloy, and the steel ones are 2.5 or 2.75.
The alloy ones are also silver, whereas the steel ones were black.

you should be able to tell by glancing at it, alloy is alloy color.

when in doubt, slap a magnet on it.

There is no such thing as a 3" alloy driveshaft in the E series.

The E Series only used either 3" steel or 3.25" alloy.

I wouldnt pay anymore than $100.
