    i think one of them has straight shackles and one has stepped out ones (wider on the top, narrower on the spring).....if that makes sense? Is this right MQMAD?

    Gearbox bellhousings are different between these as well
    Input gearbox shafts are different as well
    Starters are different
    Diff ratios are different between MQ/MK,but interchangeable except the H260 ute diffs, which the centres arent interchangeable as the H260 diffs are huge and mainly found in utes
    But complete diff housings will be fine for the swap
    Ratios,from memory
    P40 4.11
    SD 33/L28 MQ 4.6
    SD33T MK 4.33
    Ute 4.88

    There are other options in the diff ratios but not offered in aussie versions
