Hey all,
So unfortunately I spun my XR in the wet and managed to f*** up my diff. I need to replace it, would a AU+ diff fit in and if so would it benefit me?

Cheers,
SIX

the au live axle diff can be fitted, but the rear offset will now be different to the front..
and the handbrake needs a little modification to work..

otherwise there is no benefit as the centres are the same

There won't be much benefit either?
