Hiya m8. Not sure what ratio the LC uses but the diff I used was out of an Ex police senator 3.0 24v and was a Git to find the right one as not all the 24v use the 3.7o ratio, I think Stt got slightly confused .king nero said:maybe a bit late, but I've always thought LC's used a 3.45 ratio diff...

Aww shocks your too kind .Hi ya Fatz Long time no post . unfortunately nothing to update at the moment. Finances and time have all been going elsewhere for the last year . However it will change, the one thing I can gurantee is that I won't be selling it or breaking it for spares as seems to have happened to so many other projects. I'll try and get it into work and up in the air so I can at least update the thread with the final picture of the new exhaust routing etc. and (i'm not promising) but i'll see if i can get some vid with audio so you can get an idea of how the new system sounds.FatLadZ said:yea an update would be nice
Hi M8 sorry i have not answered your question sooner, I never seem to have time to get on MIG anymore . The drive shafts are shorter than the original cally turbo ones as the senator rear diff is wider than the cally diff. Also the rear lower arms off the senator are larger than the cally ones. You could make them fit by cutting off the callys mountings for the rear arms and making up new mountings. Even then though the standard senator shafts will be too long.more questions about the driveshafts.
I'm planning on fitting the same reardiff as yours;
Is the shaft length the same as standard?
I still hope to use some standard shafts,
and wondering if senator/carlton ones will fit if I use lower arms off a senator/carlton.
Then the should be no flangeproblem at least.
hi ya, unfortunately no the senator rear subframe uses different mounting locations so won't fit. Well I say that anything will fit with enough modifications but you would have to alter the fuel tank, floor pan etc etc. also the rear track on the Senator is wider so the wheels would stick out of the arches by at least 1 1/2 inches on each side.Will the whole Senator or Carlton rear subframe fit on the calibra?
Hiya Zaff' thanks for the input, it was something that I had to put a lot of thought into when I was routing the prop. The lesser of 2 evils sort of thing. The panoramic photo does makes it look worse then it is due to the distortion in the photo however that bearing is mounted in a flexible rubber disc so the bearing isn't taking any extra load and the prop joint imediately after is well within its angular operating tolerances. The rubber disc will take some more abuse then normal and will wear out quicker than standard but it will still last long time befor I need to change it .I would space out the centre prop bearing, Quite a bend on that.........
