What's the diff

You may want to check that Manky. They fitted the VL housings into the VN Grp A and the SV5000 to fit the big rubber under them. The VL diffs are the same width as the VB, VC, VH, VKs. IIRC they are about 30mm per side narrower than the VN type.
I'm not sure on your measurments. Commodore's are metric.lol.

Picky picky

I know that Commodores are metric but I don't care ! And as for the fitting of VL diffs in VN I don't think that you'll find one at that will just bolt in good luck to you if you can. And to ad further to the width of the diff's I got the numbers from an old Superfomance catalog. Give me your email address and I'll scan it and send it to you.

old Superfomance catalog

I was only taking the piss about the metric bit:)
I wasn't saying what will bolt in where. I was pointing out that the VL Diff is narrower than the VN type.
See Mick's comments HERE.
As for the original question. I assume(from THIS thread])that the VN type diff would be easily swapped for a HQ-WB.
I have a VS ute diff in the van. I can measure it tomorrow if you want. Then just check against the width of your diff.
Cheers.
P.S. If you could, send me a copy Manky.

Diff widths

Hi all. I am interested to see what the actual axle flange to flange measurements are for these diffs to add to the measurements I already have.
If my calc program is right from Mankys listed measurements
VB to VK sedan are 58.75inches = 1492.25 MM
VB to VK wagons are 59.75inches = 1511.3 MM
VN are 59.5inches = 1517.65 MM
So that means I now have 3 different sizes collected off the net for VN's
VN 1550 mm or 1560 mm and now 1517.65mm.
So which is it ?.

Here is my latest list of widths
Axle Flange to Axle flange measurements

EK 55.90" 1420 mm

HR 57.08" 1450 mm
HK 60.47" 1536 mm ?
HT/G 61.02" 1550 mm ?

LJ 53.93" 1370 mm
LH 56.69" 1440 mm
VN 1550 mm or 1560 mm ??
VY cross 8 4wd (12 03) 1706MM
1720MM with 7mm thick rotors attached.

XR-XY Falcon 59.05" 1500 mm
XA-EL 61.02" 1550 mm
XG van 11/93 1543 mm
EB 61.22" 1555 mm
BF 2004 falcon ute 1630 MM
740MM short axle, 835 long axle, 28 spline

Any help and corrections will be appreciated.
Cheers Paul.

Diff widths

It turns out I was wrong about the VL Borg warner being the same as the VB-VK diff.
Mick and Dr terry RECKON there is a difference.

Vl diff conversion

Hi there all, I'm looking at changing my VL b/w 78 diff from 25 spline lsd to 28 spline lsd as am twisting the 25's with my rb30det, any idea's/best options as to how to do this using the same housing? I hear my best option is using axles/carrier from the VN and just need to shorten the long axle, does this sound right? any help would be great, cheers,Steve.
