Who knows about Nissan truck front diffs?
Posted 07 June 2005 - 11:35 AM
What years have independent front suspension? Any with R160 or R180?
What ratios are common or available?
Any with LSD?
And, in a stock truck setup, looking from the front of the rig which way dose the front driveline turn, clockwise (right?) or counter clockwise?

All driveshaft turn the same way no matter if they are in the front or the back it dosent matter what car it is, or I have not seen any that reverse one side in the T-Case(or that dont spin the 'common' direction). I believe that it was clockwise if looking from the back but dont hold me to that.

Also, a couple web pages that talk about Nissan diffs (mostly from the point of view of Zs and rear diffs, though):

No R180 LSDs?
Kinda expensive but here's one:
Actually $450 is not all that bad, It's a bit spendy, but if its the last part you need for a nice rig you could justify it.
I wonder if it fits both front and rear? Might be just the thing for the divorced T-case guys.
For me (street car) I think a VLSD will be smoother up front on the steering axel, so I'm leaning tword a flipped 3.9VLSD, with a raised oil level to lube the bearings. Maybe I'll run a synthetic to reduce some drag. The diff in the trans is the real challenge, I know Mudrat's PG is working, but I'm not sure its the best choice for a road car running daily driver kinda mileage. Does anyone know if the front VLSD from the WRX/STI will fit into a Turbo Legacy 3.9 5MT?

A decent source of nissan info is http://www.nissanoffroad.net
Oh yeah, and does this project have something to do with a German car?
If so have you seen that 4x4 bug that Davesport used to rally? http://www.davesport...ges/davebug.jpg

That R200 would still have to be flipped to work in the front so its the same as the Legacy 160 VLSD, but if the R200 VLSD unit will fit into a truck 200 or 180 front diff it could open up some possibilities.
And yes, this project is a small round german car (I fear my loose lips in PM are catching up with me). I have seen that bug before, as I remember it was rear engine and he used a Porsche or Audi box with a custom pinion shaft and tail housing to drive to the front, I dont recall what he used for a front diff. I think I heard that the car was wrecked and is no longer around, bummer.
But my hopeful project is midengine.
