NA's :

Berlina - 3.45 gears, 2 pinion center, 25 spline axles, drum brakes, LSD Optional, Disc brakes optional

V8 - 3.08 gears, 4 pinion center, 28 spline axles, disc brakes - LSD Optional, 3.45 gears Optional

Part numbers for 3.45 ring gear and pinion are not listed for V8
and the option code (GM3 - 3.45) is only listed for 3.0 ltr engines, the rest looks good.

^^correct yeah I think If you go to holden or any parts shop and ask for a 3.45 crown and pinion set for a VL V8 nothing will come up on there computer.

However as stated, 3.45 was optional for the V8s, they would have just swapped the gearset with one from a 3L VL

(same sorta thing if you bought a Berlina and wanted Rear Discs - they would just use a rear disc setup from a Calais/Turbo/V8 model.)

I'm actually not sure if final drive ratio was optional. Not heard of any VL ever having had a different ratio selected from factory standard.

oh ok, that's just what I read in your post at the beginning of this thread - it's where all my knowledge of vl diffs comes from - not having a go, just thought I'd mention it

You can use the PBR P10330 15/16" master cylinder or go for the
PBR P10331 1" both were used on VL to VR non-ABS. IMO the dual diaphragm booster PBR VH512 and PBR P10331 1" is the go. This combo was standard on V8 /Turbo/HDT

possibly a very stupid question, but would I be able to fit this to a VL without to much hassles, meaning diff and axles disc to disc not everything else (unless it works better swapping everything)

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300422541043&ssPageNam e=STRK:MEWAX:IT

-I will be converting to manual shortly
-I'm running interceptor rims nothing big and flashy
-doing the rear disc conversion would be part of the diff swap

Not necessarily. Could be from any live axle optioned second generation Commodore optioned with an LSD.

That IRS setup won't bolt into a VL. You can use the diff centre and gears in your existing housing, as well as the calipers and discs.

As long as both centres and pairs of axles are 25 spline BW78, then yes.

would say that they'd be 25 splines, (all NA VL's generally had 25 splines, LSD was optional but would still keep 25 splines).

There's always the possibility that yours are 28 spline, as there were some different combinations. what's the numbers on your diff tag (located on the diff's sump cover -held on by one of the cover bolts). there's a post somewhere in this thread that lists what the specs of each tag are.

Compare to the ones in this thread: http://www.calaisturbo.com.au/showthread.php?t=21047

Although I think some people have found their diffs don't match any of those numbers, or they match up to the wrong number or something. should give you a fair idea tho.

you could always pull your axles out and count the splines

Counting the splines is the only accurate method.
