LSD diffs are hard to find here in tassie. I would be looking at a VL diff, lot stronger than the 6 banger small Salisbury diff.

Id also would have to say that a vl diff' would be one of the best options for a diff as they can handle a nice amount of punishment and power.

so if i was to get a VL diff it would take a lot more than the one I have now. would it have to be modified or anything to fit??
also any ideas of where to look for one and how much it would cost me??

You need to change the rear section of the tailshaft. The VL uses a flange, the VC uses a U bolts. You might need to get the tailshaft rebalanced as well.


I see your from Launceston, there is a couple of places, Steve Orders Autos out in Mowbray, he wrecks a lot of VLs, also Forster Street wreckers too, might have a good diff for you.
Oh and another thing, how low is the VC, what rims are you running and what width tyres too. This VL diff is a little longer than the Salisbury, might rub on the guards

thanks, ive been to steve orders and had a look for some stuff for it before but didnt think to look for any VLs,
it has been lowerd, but not properly. the guy that ownd it before me just chopped the springs instead of getting smaller ones. "a full car load scrapes guards." but I will have to get new shocks and springs soon anyway.
I only have 14" Centerlines and the tyres are 8-9 inches wide.

Man thats bad, what spring to the guy chop soft ones. The only way if you are going to chop springs is if they are heavey duty spring as it takes more for them to compres.

they are just the standard ones......... as they are crap.
the car isnt even really that low, its just because they were crap springs and he chopped them. "obviously I dont drive with a car load that often"
