The idea behind that is keeping the weight transfer planted on the rear wheels which will aid in traction. This is why you see some drag cars with a slightly "raked" stance. My EF is sort of set up like this with my tired Pedders suspension lol, it is lower and firmer in the front and slightly higher and softer in the rear - it struggles to spin them up off the line in the dry if i floor it as the rear end just squats down. If you are having that much trouble with traction, it may also help to invest in some wider, better quality tyres on the rear :wink:

That sounds right, the 75 series diffs are 25 spline, whereas the later 78 series ones are 28 spline so that's why.

Ebay is your friend :P

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Commodore-Ford-4-11-Borg-Warner-Diff-Gears-V8-0-POST_W0QQitemZ230460837093QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAU_Car_Parts_Accessories?hash=item35a8894ce5#ht_500wt_1101

This guy seems to have stacks of diff gears, all different ratio's. These ones listed are 4.11's but it says he has 3.7's. Just make sure you tell him you want 3.7's to suit a 78 series b/w diff if you ask about them :wink:
