View Full Version : Rear Differential Help

02-12-2008, 12:44 PM
First of all i have a 1990 hatch with no ABS or LSD

So i went to the junkyard and ripped a rear end out of a 1995 j30.

Unbolted my diff and swapped covers. Now upon reinstallation it seems as though the two bolts that hold the diff to the subframe wont fit! They just go in all the way and spin. They seem almost too short. The diff is being pressed against the car with the jack that i used to lift it.

do i need to buy longer bolts with the same thread pitch?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need J30, Z32 or S14 oem bolts with bushings. Or make something up.
