Yes you can get a diff shop to put LSD in either 28 spline (VLT/V8) or 25 spline (N/A 6). I doubt you will find a VLT diff and "if" you find VL V8 diff you will also need to change the diff gears as 3.08 is way to long

Yes you can do that. However 28 spline axles are hard to come by in NZ

Your best bet is to ring Tony at Steelie Gears (09 276 6297). He rebuilt my diff with 28 spline axles, 4 spider VR SS LSD and 3.45 gears for around $1,000. Thats with me taking the diff down to him out of the car

If you have less than 150rwkw I would just get him to put an LSD and disk brakes on your 25 spline diff
