    need help replacing my xtr rd m970

    Hey Guys
    My rd has packed it in after nearly 6 years of riding so I want to replace it. I have been looking on eBay for a replacement and am a little overwhelmed with the choices. The m970 as far as I can tell is not available anymore. I did find a low-normal m960, would it fit? I also see a m971 gs top-normal and a m972 shadow gs. So I'm not sure what the numbers mean and which one would fit. As much as I've enjoyed the rapid rise option I am not stuck on having it again. I'm looking for something used as I just need to limp this bike along until my new one gets here If someone could point me in the right direction as to which derailleur to buy that would be great. Thanks
