Ring and pinion


I'm looking to purchase a high mileage 2001 turbo with 112,000. The owner told me one of the items that require future service is the ring and pinion. He states its currently whinning a little. His mechanic told him that its does not need a ring and pinion right away but in another 30k or when the whinning gets louder. I called around town to see what it will take to fix this issue. One shop told me R&R of transmission then he would need to send out to have it rebuilt. Another states the ring & pinion can be replaced on this car without R&R of tranmission. What's the right answer? How much will this cost? What could be uncover if I get a PPI?
