why not put an LSD inside your existing Crown wheel.I do not know if it is possible but it must be the easiest option. Bill

pull the diff out and count the teeth.

there will be a axle code on the chassie plate it will start with g then have 3 numbers after that. you can find out the ratio from that. yes front and rear diff heads are interchangable but only if your hilux has a solid front diff instead of indepedent front suspension

Jack the vehicle up and mark to opposite wheels with chalk at the bottom,,, then mark the drive shaft with chalk so you can count how many turns there is. Some one lay under the car,, to count the no of turns the drive shaft does, Get two of your mates, or your wife and your girl friend to turn both side wheels at the same time in the same direction for one full turn till the chalk is at the bottom. If your drive shaft turns 4.5 times then you have a 4.5 to 1 diff ratio.
