I currenly have 3.08 diff gears in my VB and want some 3.45s or 3.55s for it instead. Does anyone know what cars I could get the gears from so they will fit my diff? Im not massively fussed about getting an LSD just yet so im just after the gears

Its probably a v8, 8bolt salisbury.If it is get rid of it and get a vl 6cyl b/w diff(3.45 ratio).I wouldnt trust a 8 bolt salisbury i,ve had one lock up doing 80ks down the freeway and one lock up at around 30ks pulling up to a set of lights,with out much warning.

Factory 253 commodores usually have 8 bolt diff, not the usual V8 10 bolt diff. Is the diff cover round or egg/oval shape?
