Does wagon fit in sedan?????

Hey, I'm looking at a wagon with a T5 and a LSD, I was wondering if the tail shraft fits a sedan, Oh we are talking XF, Well basically if its the same stuff and if it all fits.

Thanks,

Big Jimmy,

I dont think it would. The wagon is based on the longer platform and since the engine, gearbox and diff are basically the same I would have to assume the tail shaft would be longer to suit.

Re: Does wagon fit in sedan?????

I thought the diff was different due to the wagon having a leaf sprung rear end while the sedan used watts link coil springs?
Although i could be wrong...

Wagon tail shaft longer than sedan.
Diff's are the same, except for spring mounting brackets..

I am guessing but the utes and wagons would share the same size tail shaft wouldnt they? Along with the Fairlaine/LTD variants. The sedan is shorter so it has to be the shorter tail shaft.

The tailshafts are different length, the diff centres are the same, the diff/axle housings are different. So everything can be swapped from one to the other without too much hassle.

NO to diff - because mounting points for the suspension are different, but all internals are swapable so you could acheive a swap that way, or get the mounting points swapped from one to the other.

YES to Grearbox, reatain your tail shaft in the sedan.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

YES - they will line up, they should both have 4 bolts holding the UNI joint, or is it 6, in any event should be the same diameter and spacing and same number of bolt holes :0).
