    Just wondering if a VH sedan diff will bolt up in a wagon? Someone told me that the only problem would be the shockies wouldn't bolt up, is that all? Will the sway bar, pan hard rod and trailing arms bolt up ok?

    It's only for the SKiDWAGON, so the back brakes won't be required, and we also don't need springs or shocks, just gonna weld sumfin in so it's stiff as f**k!! :thumbsup:

    When we put the new 202 in we might even be able to 2 wheelers instead of one wheelers haha :w00t:

    BTW, the only reason we wanna do it is coz we got a diff with 3.9 gears in it, but don't wanna put the gears in the current diff coz we don't know how to shim it up right.:bang:

    Well that is one problem, where the shock bolts up to, but also the sedan diff is shorter in length.
    Later today i'll take a pic of a wagon diff and a sedan diff, both 10 Bolt Sals too. You will see a difference
