Iv been doing a little research i wonder about the interchangeability with other makes of car. As our cars are not the only cars to run the r180 rear diff although we run a 3.7 final drive which is rare.
I know for a fact that early wrxs among others run a r180 diff although the cover was different i wonder weather the internals were the similar/same/diff ratio??
Also the part no. 38420-RS420 a google search gives you an outfit in the states that possibly can supply listed as a nissan frontier 4*4. They also have the front listed.
I also know that the nissan altima nismo front lsd is the same part no. 38420-RS426 as a gtir front lsd and retails for around $800US. Not sure if its exactly the same diff?? I guess the only thing missing is the nismo drive shaft that is needed to fit it.
Just thought i would post this if anyone else knows weather these will work for a fact or not would be good.
that the problem
a lot people mistake with front LSD and Centre LSD
38420- RS426 in term of GTIRoc, it is called center LSD
Front LSD is is where it connect to the rear transfer
The Front LSD is the one need the special drive shaft
