i dont think so....but id like to hear from others who have done a ratio change...

I have a put a 3.7 in a EA 2.77 wagon housing and it seemed to fit without any problems and it didnt require extra shims, but I havent put it in my car yet..

Problem is there is so much BS relayed about this topic you dont know what to believe.

I have quite a collection of housings and centers and I am yet to find this late model 78 series housing that takes 75 series gears.

My advice - if you want to put 75 series gears in a car with a 78 series diff either find someone who will make a shim up for you at a price your happy to pay, build your diff from a 75 series ea housing/arms, or pay the money and get the right series a*** for your diff.

2.77 EA diffs are 75 series, so any of the R31 ratios will fit

so both the 4.11s and the 3.08 had 0575 stamped on them?

If they were 78's they wouldnt have fit in your 2.77 housing without machining.
