Default Difference in rear adapter housings?

Ok so I have got a cracked rear housing. 04 GMC 2500hd 4x4 lb7. I have found 3 different places selling them.

Merchant: Just the housing but says it has new c5 apply piston $485. With gaskets $504. 12 month warranty

https://www.merchant-automotive.com/...using-4x4.aspx

LDS: Housing does not say it comes with piston or not $475

http://lincolndieselspecialties.com/...n-housing.html

Amazon ACDelco: Housing $330 12 month warranty. With gaskets $362.

https://www.amazon.com/ACDelco-29544.../dp/B0016J3YG6


I am all for you get what you pay you pay for but they all have the same part #29544804. Why such a big difference in price? I can see $50 but $150 seem off to me some how. I know if it sounds to good to be true it is, but this is strange. As far as returns I will have to ship it back with either option so no big deal there.

Thanks in advance.

That was my thought but wanted other opinions.

Ran into the same thing when I built the trans in the Suburban. Bought it on Amazon, it was the newer style with the additional webbing. Trans shop said I got it cheaper than they could, so they called their supplier. Supplier said Amazon has it cheaper than HE could get it.

I think Amazon just sells so much ACDelco stuff they get a discount
