iirc is that the 93-95 j30 diffs had 5 bolt shafts and the 96-? had 6 bolt. if you put a j30 or z32 diff in you WILL NEED the 2 bolts and shims that hold the front of the diff up, and also change the rear cover.
check on here every once in a while cause they sell s14 rear subframes that come with the 5lug and vlsd

TT models are R230's. They are bigger and stronger, but the R200's, which you already have, are plenty strong for most setups. The R230 is not a direct swap, and it has a considerably taller final drive. The NA Z32 uses an R200. It's not a direct swap, and if you already have the LSD, you are gaining nothing.

The 280ZX did not come with a limited-slip from the factory. I just looked through the factory service manual to make sure, and all its differentials are open 2-pinion varieties. It also has a completely different housing and output shafts than the later cars. The first Z with LSD of any sort was the '87 300ZX turbo, which had the clutch LSD. They later (unfortunately) switched to the VLSD, although some more recent models got a helical LSD, like the S15.

No. I'm not wrong. The link you posted shows how to swap the 280ZX differential into the older Z, which is possible, and the gear ratio you listed is indeed correct. Nowhere did I say you were wrong about that. However, the housing is very different from the later R200's (newer ones have a much shorter nose, different mounts, and different outputs), and the differential pictured is a conventional 2-pinion open unit (non-LSD). It would be possible to swap some of the internals, but there's no reason to use it on the newer cars. The 240SX and NA Z32 already have a 4.08 ratio.

all i know is that the Z32's TT diff is going to be a little more stout than the N/a... Both are LSD... if you are looking for a better low end acceleration then go for the N/a but it you are looking for the top end go for the TT...

im not sure about numbers but i just know that the gear ratio in them are different... ppl swap the N/a rear subframe into their TT for better 0-60 times...

Another note.... if you go with the TT you can run the HICAS lines which would give you the 4 wheel steering... not sure if that would benefit you or not... But its a hell of a ride... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
