I don't like to post in the FAQ threads but this seems like it might be appropriate.  clarkspeed posted a link to a site, about shocks, but the site also had a pretty good description of the different differential options and how they behave.

Everything is shown n the two links below.  You might need something bigger than the phone you're pecking at, to read through them.

I have looked at this thread in the past and completely missed the part where an S13 lsd will work in the long nose R200.

 

If no one minds, delete me if you feel the need but I made a thread because I didn't see/comprehend the info here.

 

Any aftermarket S13 lsd made for an S13 open diff will fit into a long nose R200 and work with the stock 280Z stub shafts as well as the Z31T axles.

 

Does anyone see a problem with that statement or is it unnecessary?

 

I remember there being a difference with bolt size, 10mm vs 12mm in the S30/130 R200 and Z31. I can't remember which is which, though.

 

EDIT: Ugh, didn't realize how old that discussion was. Going to search and see if I can find it but if anyone knows off the top of their head it would be very helpful.
