i've heard of bad diffs and chassis bending on them too.
an aftermarket mob did them for dealers. They used to do xr utes as well.

Ride: Concorde

Location: canberra
ACT, Australia

It was an aftermarket fitment by dealers.

problems: going up gutters, rear axle lifting drive axle and getting no drive.

scrubbing tyres, as you'd expect.

but no real diff problems, put that down to poor driving habits.
