We're installing a gripper LSD into an 89' GT racecar. Problem is the splines on all of the half shafts and our welded and open diffs have square splines. The gripper LSD has triangular splines (sourced new from England).

Were triangular splines something used in other markets or models? Any insight would be helpful. Running into many delays and roadblocks on the rebuild :shock:

Thanks all!

well... they're using my VIN, engine, and tranny codes to source some bits in England to make some sun gears with proper splines.

I haven't had much luck decoding my own #'s lol; not sure what was original to the car since it was bought as a race car and no title.

Gave them this:

the engine is out of a 1988 and the tranny is out of a 1990
