Some various diff questions regarding IRS

This is just a general information gathering excercise.

I need to find out:
A: What axles are used in the AU IRS setup
B: What axles are used in the RTV ute setup
C: Can an RTV ute diff centre be fitted into the IRS diff housing?

You can probably see where I'm going with this. Basically I would like to at some stage down the track when i get a BA 6T, do a bit of work playing round with my EB. I want to fit IRS purely as a wank factor mod and run the AU front end setup. Then I thought about getting a RTV diff with its switchable diff lock, welding on the trailing arm brackets and having a live axle. Its probably a long shot but could I combine the 2 and have the locking diff centre in the IRS setup? I have heard the RTV diff uses larger axles.

This is just a bit of forward planning so any idea's /theories etc are appreciated.

Re: Some various diff questions regarding IRS

I believe the RTV would use the M86 diff with the 30 spline axles. You would be better off trying to use the BA IRS as a starting point.

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

Re: Some various diff questions regarding IRS

the AU IRS is almost bolt in to anything earlier, as its based around a "frame" that mounts to the lower trailing arm mountings, whereas the BA sedan has different mountings in the chassis
