front diff

  1. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi all, I own a Y60 '95 non turbo diesel LWB and Id like to switch whole the front diff. with the Y61 as I heard it has stronger cv's. Id like to ask you, are all Y61s (2.8, 3.0, 4,2, diesel/petrol) diffs the same and will it fit straight on, any mods needed for a proper job? Thanks.
  2. General Patrol Discussion
    i have heard word that welding the front diff greatly reduces the steering ability whilst in 4wd. and this is why air lockers are preferred. but isnt a diff LOCKED no matter what the method? giving the same out come? obviously you can just flick airlockers on and off but cant you do the same...
