haha yeh thats right frank,
the guy at the wreckers is a bit "simple" and he didnt even know it was a fairmont til i told him, he said i could have it for 150 but he doesnt know what ratio or if its lsd..i think it is a 3:27...i not sure i could kinda see the numbers. i will just go back out there an give it a spin.

cheers for the replies people

I have EDV8 Fairmont auto 3.27 4 pinion Open Centre diff which I want to change to either 3.45 LSD or 3.7 LSD.

Quotes range from $1400 to $1700 using new bits.

At those prices would I be better of to fit 9inch diff?
Apart from watts linkage are there any major issues?
Has anyone tried this?

Richie.

I love U-pullit wreckers when they guys don't know what things really are.

Fairmont Ghia's have had LSD standard since XD. The LSD I put in my VL came from a Fairmont Ghia diff that I scored from U-pullit for $105. I just took the "spin resistant diff" tag off first :)
