    Default R180 and R200 axles

    I finally got my R180 4.11 LSD, before i put it in, can i use the R200 axles with it? or do i need the R180s?

    When you say "axles" do you mean the axles that "clip" in to the differential or the drive shafts (commonly called half-shafts)? I believe that the 280Z axles will work if the 4.11 LSD has the groove and circlip in the splines. Some of the R180s uses bolt in axle, with a threaded "button" in the center. If yours has the groove inside, the 280Z axles will probably work, but I'm just guessing, I've never had an R180.

    There are some writeups on Hybrids about converting an R180 to the bolt-in style. You might do the reverse.

    Read about half way down the page here - http://forums.hybridz.org/index.php/...30-diff-mount/

    The whole thread is worth reading.

    Yes i meant half shafts, i also actually read that thread at work today.

    Another thing i was wondering, do i need a different mustache bar? i read somewhere that he R180 was flat instead of curved? is this true?

    Everyone swaps out the R180, nobody seems to put one back in
