rick Posted September 16, 2006 Share Posted September 16, 2006 GQ-GU (Y61) front with Nissan front radius arms is almost a bolt in. GU has the stronger CV's, is a wider track and has bigger (wider) discs with twin (floater) piston calipers compared to a GQ, but IIRC the stub is the same size. Check http://www.outerlimits4x4.com/PHP_Modules/phpBB2/ and click on the Rover forum, a few blokes have done the GQ conversion. Maggot4x4 did this, including a Nissan rear but had vibration problems with the rear (centred) diff in his Rangie, so went 80 series housings front and rear. For the front end, GQ is by far the easiest, it is just bolt in, make a steering arm, block a brake pipe, redrill the pinion flange and your done.For the rear, I would go 80 series, due to the offset of the diff and the fact they are full floaters Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
