I have an Australian delivered SL500 <br>
These were spec'd with 2.65:1 diff ratio....eek ! <br>
My intention is to use 3.27:1 ratio that was used in the SL280's <br>
<br>
1. has anyone done this conversion ? <br>
2. are the differential housings the same ? <br>
3. I presume the ABS & ASR will be upset by the change in pulse speed from the new gears... <br>
- is this correct ? <br>
- if so, how do I over come it ? <br>
4. what (major issue/s) have I overlooked ? <br>
<br>
Help me :(<br>
Q<br>

Diff Ratio

How bout installing a SLR 5000 banjo diff, with 4.44 gears from a HQ one tonner mate? It can be done, and is a hell of a lot cheaper than finding a 3.45 SL320 diff, which i have heard works just fine....Meat pie floater to ya!<br>
