better of just using the gears from it...

post count says not a troll but last few threads by you say might be.....

No, the borg warner diff as fitted to commodoores,falcons,cortinas,skylines and pintaras although similar will have very different widths,brake setups and suspension mounts - not to mention that some are weaker with 25 spline axles and 2 pinion LSD's and some stronger with 28 spline axles and 4 pinion LSD's, and modifying the basics such as the suspension mounts is best left to the pro's or done by somone who doesnt need to ask. Your best off sticking to post EB/ED/EF/EL diffs for your falcon as they all share widths, stud pattern, basick brake setup (you can mix and match parts easily enough) and swap over with minimal suspension tweaking (some require trailing arms from the donor car)
