its just that simple i have 3.08:1 car and want to keep that ratio so lookin for a complete LSD diff for rebuild dont need brakes but needs to be from a ef el which is the only models they come in i think.

or are they common at all?

Couldn't you just take the crown wheel off your original 3.08 open centre and then bolt it on to the recoed LSD centre?

Get a 3.23 LSD from a Fairlane, and the speedo gear, and just fit that if you don't want to go the whole reco a diff thingy.

i ended up using the gearing from the 3.08 and a lsd centre and got it rebuilt, changed the speedo gear to match its no torque monster but its good for towing and on the highway
