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.
