I have also seen a VL with full GTR running gear, but that was a long time ago, before I knew what was involved.

I doubt it - an IRS diff requires a cradle, and there are no mounts for one on a standard VL floorpan.

That was good form wasn't it! No link lol.

Try this one:
http://www.driftshop.com.au/twinvl/nissanirs.html

I know of 2 4WD VL's, one used IRS, the other was live axle, but the owner was looking to change to IRS, haven't seen him in ages so not sure if it got done or not.

The guy who owns the car in this link is a member on this site, not sure how much he gets on here anymore, that page hasn't been updated in a fair while either.

The Opel Monza was built on the same platform as the first gen commodores, and yes i believe the IRS in the VL Directors was similar to the Monza setup. Never had the opportunity to check one out though to see how it fits up.

I have a 28 spline spooled vlt diff with 3.9s, can I just swap the locked center for an lsd one and keep my 3.9s?

Yes Brad. You just need to remove the ring gear from your locked centre, and bolt it onto the LSD centre.

Great thread, still a little confused though so ill shoot an idiot question out.

I've got a 25 spline in my vl atm and am looking to convert it to LSD. I've been looking at getting the Harrop Detroit TruTrac unit, and have a few questions. How would i go about having this put in my diff atm if possible? What would need taking out/replacing if its possible? OR would i just need to go buy a 28 spline and have this installed - same question would need taking out/replacing in the 28 spline?

Thanks .

The TruTrac comes standard in a 28 spline unit. If you were to put this in, you'd also need stock 28 spline axles. If you wanted a 25 spline TruTrac, you'd need to contact Harrop for a quote on the custom unit.

I'm currently waiting on a price on a custom 31 sline TruTrac.

I don't know of anyone that has fitted this centre to a BW78 yet, so I don't know if the housing needs machining. Maybe I'll be the first!

For Sale section should help you out. VL V8s came 28 spline disc to disc; you might be able to pick up a rolling shell cheap if you're lucky.

Umm...by head do you mean centre? Or carrier? If so, the first post will answer your question.

"Similarly, a VN-VS diff housing (excluding IRS; see below) cannot be bolted onto a VL chassis (they are too wide)."

I have a vn diff in my vl.bolted straight in?????Its only about 30mm wider total

Yes, they can be bolted onto a VL chassis, but you'll find if you start looking at aftermarket rims, your offsets will be very difficult to work with.
