So David, how much do you want for your c200 ring gear and pinion?

Maybe it will help if you can tell me what motor was in your MQ donar vehicle. L28?

Johan, the front C200 is now under the Sani as my SFA. I have the rear C200 coming out soon to make place for my H260. So that is not going to help you any.

Lsd from D21 Navara will fit thats what prompted me to suggest the gear ratios - but i didn't like it much when I fitted one to my old truck and changed to a Lokka which offered more traction and was nicer to drive.

Charo, can you add some friction plates to the pack to stiffen up the lsd.

We have a member here that has a lokka on the rear of his Terrano 2 with a nice tight lsd on the front. Its a nice combo and unstoppable. (Obviously not the diffs we are using though).

You guys in Aus have a set of friction plates avaliable for the H260 for $8 that I have my eye on. Evidently just about locks that diff up, but could possibly to harsh for my daily driver.

I played with the front LSD for a while before giving up on it - initially in standard form it didn't limit slip enough so i shimmed it up a little and while traction was good my turning circle was huge (even in 2wd with the hubs locked in she would sledge a little before turning). LSD internals (spider gears, shims clutch plates) between C200 and H233 diffs all seem interchangeable from my experience. My old MK SWB had a shimmed up rear LSD (would chirp the tyres turning at slow speeds on tarmac) and a front Lokka - this combo offered excellent traction while only effecting drive ability slightly.

I would like a shimmed rear LSD better than a locker... Think hooning... Combined with the front ARB locker it will be a "pleasure" to drive... get my drift

Diesel and large tyres kept the tail in line on tarmac - but was quite happy to play on gravel.

Johann, I haven't being following this thread till now, but for what it is worth I recently bought a complete rear axle assembly just for the sake of a replacement axle . Why? Long story which I won't go into here.

The replacement assembly came with an H233b diff and 4.875 ratio - so they do exist. I think it came from an MK as the brakes were fitted with the self-adjusting shoe mechanism which the MQ never had and which I had not seen before. I think the donor vehicle was a flat-bed ute with SD33 but not certain.

So they do exist in this part of the world - just keep looking. I did ask what happened to the front diff but it had gone. I run 4.375 which with 33s and a 5sp gearbox gives 2,300 rpm at 100kph which works well. Original diffs were 3.9 - great for the open road but tricky on steep muddy descents.

Probably. The crown wheel and pinion on the front is reverse cut. Everything else may just fit....

Thanks David, when time allows I will go hunting for the bits....

Pathfinders and Navaras with a CA axle code used a C200 rear and some came with LSD's, Skyline's (GT-R's I believe) used an R200 with LSD in the rear.

ARB part number for the C200 front air locker in an MQ/MK is RD202, the part number is the same for 29 spline C200's in the rear of Navaras and Pathfinders, so since the part numbers for the lockers are the same, that would suggest to me that the LSD from one of the above models will bolt in. I believe the MQ/MK front is 29 spline too.

All correct James! Also 300Zx Turbo's came with R200's and I'm sure some more.
