hg borgwarner diff questions

hi everyone,
Asked some question about putting vs diff in my hg some time ago and got some great advice but have a few more things i need cleared up.
Am going to hq stud pattern to match front brakes by redrilling axle and machining adapter to take up difference[saw this in myeh's shed,great car] but am wondering will i have issues with track/ width difference between front and rear end? And will the hq offset rims still fit under the rear guards ok? Will be using stock hq rims with whitwalls prob 195 width. Thanks in advance. Ps really dont want to shorten diff or run commodore rims

Hey,
No problem with different track widths front & back , many production vehicles have differences , you cannot go less than the original spec width for your HG (1476mm) but you can go up to 26mm overall wider , the VS is 1491mm which is only 15mm bigger with Commodore wheels but the HQ wheels will take the track ( measured at centre of tyre tread ) even further as there is about 40mm difference in the backset of the two wheels , rebanding the HQ wheels to the Commodore spec would get you where you want to be and stay legal.
Can't help with fitting in rear guards or not.

Cheers
Ken

How did it go? Would love to know what you had to do to fit VS Diff with HQ brakes and hub in to your HG.
