Re: Diffs???

yeah there not cheap. I think thanatos was looking around but he only found one for $700. He then decided to get his rebuilt with an LSD centre and 3.45:1 with all new parts for the same price. I think it'd be worth giving a diff rebuilder a try :)

Re: Diffs???

yep, the last EL XR6 3.45 LSD that was going on these forums was selling for about $600, and there was A LOT of interest, so expect $700-$800 for one from a wrecker.
I'd deffinately get one rebuilt to the specs you want, would probably cost less in the long run

Re: Diffs???

If you want to do it cheaply, get a 28 spline 3.08 and VL 3.45 diff gears. May involve a little work but better than spending top dollar.

Also you won't find any 3.7s at wreckers, except inside the housings of some Skylines.

Re: Diffs???

well it depends on if you want to do exchange or if you want them to do yours.

if you want them to do yours, just ring up and ask "how much would it cost me for you to rebuild my falcon diff with 3.45/3.7 gears and a limited slip center?"

or just how much for a pre-built one.

you might be able to get one out of an XR or something, but as said above, no falcons came with a 3.7, you would need that built especially with skyline gears in it.
