 Re: r31 diff vs h165
good thing i was online, never would have seen that otherwise

i shortened the housing myself and did the mounts, so that cost nothing
cost $110 to have the axle cut down and resplined
just an open centre at the moment, but will be running a ford LSD once i have the money to get one

I put 13s on mine, just had to trim the caliper cooling fins by a couple of millimetres. This was with an alloy wheel, a steelie wouldnt fit without lots of work.

got a pic of r31 axle and h165 axle next to each other?

 Re: r31 diff vs h165
no, but have a pic next to a 145 axle
we can pretend its a 165 axle

i can get a pic of the 28 spline next to a h165 axle, just requires me pulling an axle out of the ute diff

 Re: r31 diff vs h165
maybe if we just wrap the 145 axle in tape till its the same size, then it will save the hassle of cutting down a diff

as long as you use 100Mph tape she will hold up just fine

this is for drag/street? i can't imagine you'd want something like that weighing you down at the circuit or autox ...

 Re: r31 diff vs h165
well its almost cheaper to do this and get an LSD than it is to get a h165 LSD, so there's one bonus, and you dont have to worry about collecting diffs to replace broken parts. IMO these benifits outweigh the cost of the extra weight

machine the disk down and run different calipers... or just get rid of the disks and go to drums

edit: come to think of it, if you get rid of the handbrake crap (run commodore rear calipers) then 13s should fit

 Re: r31 diff vs h165
you would be surprised... different flange (need the BW flange on the tailshaft and to redrill 2 holes in the diff flange) but length of tailshaft is the same

width is 20mm wider than standard after i cut it down
