Sounds interesting ó not the diff fitting ó the fact that someone has similar ideas to me ;D

You know it'll be  possible ;D ;D ;D

My theory is that the diff should fit in the existing casing ó although there will be extra holes and bits to fit

Have you got coils on your back axle or leafs I know the Paj had coils by 89 not sure on the Shoggie ó coils and I think you'll get away with a straight swop

On a full axle swop you could weld the plates on for leaf springs or you could do the conversion for coils

Putting the whole axle on will also upgrade your brakes as well to discs

Watch out for the diff ratio though as there are a number of options on the Mk2
