    im not quite sure why you would put a 4link in and keep the dodgy salisbury diff i would have put a 9 inch in even if it was a single spinner untill i could get a lsd for it, im not having a go at you but it seems like your goin to be doing it twice

    dhoges theres alot more young guys here than i thought

    good work mate, tho I have to agree with hz above, turn up the wick & your chosen diff will be toast.

    ^^^i was thinking the same thing. Looks like youve got someone helping who has some experience in these things. Clearly you have good taste in cars, though i may be biased.
    A minute of thinking can save hours of doing
