Default 280Z differential swap

I have a 76 280Z with a 3.54 R200. I recently purchased a 4.37LSD R200 from a skyline. The 4.37LSD is 0.562" longer because it has a VSS on the front snout. Also the drive flange uses 10mm bolts on a 40.5mm radius vs the stock R200s 8mm bolts on a 35mm radius. Does anyone know what car I can get a matching flange for the driveshaft from? I thought about swaping drive flanges between differentials, but I think that would mess up the pinion preload. Is this correct? I've never had a Z car diff apart.

Default RE: 280Z differential swap

I'm curious...how did this swap work out...what did you have to do?

I have a R190 4.37 LSD that I'm about to put in with a 1981 tranny...

Any word of wisdom? Did your car scream when you did the conversion? which tranny do you have?
