Default 3.9 rear diff r160

Hey guys,

Just after a 3.9 rear diff R160 if possible for my 6 speed conversion. Just shoot me a pm if you got one.

Cheers,

Chris.

Is there a difference between a 3.9 for a 5speed and 6speed?

Will not matter as long as the rear diff is 3.9 ratio. If you are lucky enough you can score a r160 2 way plated 3.9 just need to ring wreckers.... The Wrx 3.9 is usually a open diff like the front.

3.9 R160's are hard to find. They don't come in any Aus delivered WRX and only one version of JDM for a very short run.
You will most likely have to build one from 2 diffs.
NB; the ones everyone flogs as 3.9 are usually 3.54

You will need an open R160 3.9 from an early lib, and whatever LSD center you want to use to match your shafts.
