Subaru R180 LSD stub axle options

    Hi guys,

    I've just been lucky enough to track down a Subaru 3.9 AP Suretrac LSD to put in my 240Z and am now looking to get some stub axles which I understand are the only thing I need to bolt it straight in.

    Is there any availability in the UK or Europe? Or am I going to have to purchase through the US?

    I've seen that Silvermine, Wolfcreekracing and Futofab all sell options at different price points in the US but wasn't sure if there was something more local.

    Any advice or help would be gratefully received!

    Cheers

    I purchased my stub axles from the states. You will also have to swop the input flange from your old diff

    I might have a set of beta motorsports ones going spare..... I'm going to have some custom CV shafts made up I think.

    I read it wrong, I thought he was asking about the flange on the end of the diff

    Sean sometimes has some of the guy that makes them in the USA in stock. That’s where I got mine.

    John Williams is your man. Do a search on facebook. They were $300 I think. He quoted me $635 for 2 sets including shipping to the UK. I'm also interested in a set so maybe order 2 and we split shipping and duty.

    Thanks for all the responses guys, it sounds like John Williams is going to be my most cost effective solution assuming he's got some in stock.

    PM'd.

    He makes them to order usually although I think he normally has some.

    I have the Subi 3.7 and used Wolf Creek several years ago. From what i Understand FutoFab has now taken over Wolf Creek. I have seen good things posted in the states about John Williams and hard to beat his prices.

    I purchased my stub axles from Silvermine in December think they where $370
    Then like I said swopped the input flange from the old diff

    What you really want is a 4.11 or 4.44 :)

    Correct, read the same thing in my research. Futofab state that they've redesigned the process to make them stronger but also have a much stronger price to ask. Glad to hear more positive words about John.

    Sounds identical to my plan, just hoping to only pay $300 through John. Hopefully it's going to be a great mod!

    Surely that's only great if your staying local and not planning any longer road trip or cruising? Bet it will dash around B roads great though!
