Hey Randy, speaking of Quantums, just saw this on Bozeman craigslist. You should get it, if only to sell to me when I can get my rump roast out there. Would make for a ***************in parts car, or to leave as is, or to try and lift!

So what other IFS diffs might work for a rearend swap? A Toyota front IFS? Frankenstein the Toyota inners to the Subaru outer CVs? Or swap the locking Toyota hubs over completely?

I'm guessing there are clearance issues with truck IFS diffs, but if you've got your diff dropped for a lift anyway, would that provide enough clearance?

I dont think the issues you are going to find will be related to clearance.

they will be related to gearing. Most people are looking for a locker for a non t-cased Subaru. That means the rear diff needs to match whatever ratio they already have.

Yeah, mine's got 3.90s, but luckily Soob made 4.11s. Were those in the automatics?

But wait, you say most folks who want lockers are in newer soobs without a high/low tcase? I would have thought most who have a subaru for offroading are in an ea82 or ea81 specifically because it has lowrange. If you've got a newer car with AWD, then your offroading is probably mostly higher speed stuff such as mudding and rallying, in which case LSD works well enough. Amiright?

Ah, thats where you got confused.

Do not confuse the stock 4wd (single range or hi/low) with a t-cased Subaru.

As I posted earlier. the rear diff from an expedition or explorer with IFS would work most likely. You should be able to find a locker for one of those and probably a 4.1

3.9 I dont think is a factory ratio.
