vl commy - skyline axle/diff transfer
« on: June 29, 2006, 07:09:00 PM »
Hey guys, my mate has got a vl holden commodore  with a RB20DET engine that isn't factory.  The car was converted from just a dud rb20e so therefore has got the crap factory diff and drum brakes.  Has anyone heard of a skyline Rear end being put in a vl?  Does it all match up, or is there major mods needed?  How does it all measure up?  

Also, Do GTS's have the same LSD as the GTS-T, because they would be alot more common and cheaper than a GTS-T 5 stud.  We could easily swap the 4 stud hub for his holden 5 stud.

Why not just fit a gts v8 holden commie disc brake rear end that way you wont have compliance hassles and it will bolt strait in I would do this rather than trying to chop a skyline diff into it.

Cant find a v8 diff anywhere just figured this would be the cheap option due to the abundance of skylines around
