Yep it will fit but you have to cut the mounts off and weld the ones off the other diff on I have done this before

Don't do it, way to wide scrubs like buggery. Also you have to be careful welding bit onto it, due to loads it will take.

Maybe your panhard is bent or you need an adjustable one.

No the diff will not fit without modifications as stated above. Surely it would be easier to get a VL sedan diff and put that in. I have just fited a VL 3.08 28spline LSD to my VK sedan and it just bolted straight in, got to be easier than having to change all your diff mounts, or look for a swap maybe someone with the sedan diff you want will want your wagon one, or just change the internals over to a sedan housing, but thats not that easy to do with out some prior knowledge either.

Nope not bent at all and have tried an adjustable one too. The diff is a few mm wider than a VL sedan diff, a few mm shorter than a VN sedan diff. Wide buggers.

Also, its lowered so the tyre that should scrub would be the drivers side.
