Locking rear diff - Classic shape - Bargain

#1 by Steaky , Thu Sep 26, 2013 5:03 pm

Due to changing to a better ratio that is more suited to the 35" rubber, I have for sale my old locking diff.

In perfect working order with very little backlash and came out at 76000 miles - the oil was spotless when removed

This is the complete diff unit and carrier ONLY and not the axle case or half shafts!



Looking for £60 collected from near South Leeds




I'll have the front diff going too soon once I swap them over - if anyone is interested in that - it will be complete with case and cross shaft - £50



Or if you want, £100 for both!


The ratio of these units is 4.875:1 which is standard for the L200 ;D

I believe it's just shortening the gearing ratio of the diff to compensate for the bigger tyres. gearing down the diff after gearing up the rolling diameter of the wheels. Should help with acceleration but reduce speed at given revs.
When whacking on bigger rubber you do this to reduce load on the transmission and engine.

What he said.....

The original diff is 4.85 to 1 that's 4.85 rotations of the prop shaft to one rotation of the wheel. so going to 5.285 to 1 means the propshaft has to turn and extra half turn to get the same wheel rotation, does not seem like a lot but makes a big difference.

Sorry for the late reply to this. Been busy with work

Front diff has been changed and both are now ready for collection to whoever wants them

As for the reason in change - the above explanations are pretty much spot on for it

Mike - The diffs are ready and waiting if you want them still - I have a front and rear prop for sale (no play in UJ's and center bearing is good too) if you want to buy them too?
