Got a new diff

On Saturday I got a new diff put in at Just Falcons in Bayswater. $400 all up for diff and fitting. It's a 3.23LSD out of an EA Fairmont. Goes a bit better than the old 2.77 single spinner. The best thing is the extra grip you get on takeoff....it's mad. Down the track I'll put higher gears in it but for now I've spent enough.

Re: Got a new diff

Sounds pretty reasonable. Did you happen to get any prices on a 3.45LSD fitted? How long did it take them? Any other noticeable differences with the new diff fitted?

Re: Got a new diff

are they expensive with diffs? cos everything i have got prices on from there so far has been pretty expensive

It's one thing to lose a drag, it's another thing to lose a drag against a holden. I'd die before I let that happen to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Got a new diff

Is that fitted?
I think just falcons are reasonably priced.
I bought everything to convert my XF 6 to a 351 V8 including a reco radiator, C4, engine, elect dizzy and absolutely everything else for $1300.

Cheers
Dan
