    sometimes its cheaper to buy a whole car from the quokka and rip the diff out then sell it on to scrap metal/wreckers.
    they are always on the lookout for hilux etc etc

    Try A1 toyota wreckers on Munt street bayswater. they r pretty much the only toyota wrecker that still do older parts. Just be straight to the point with them though. I know them well but I know for a fact they have no time for "time wasters" always shows to flash some cash around to show ur serious.

    I found one when i was looking, can't remember where, but they wanted $600 for it. I'll find out for you who it was.
    I'm with Todd though, they pop up in the quokka fairly regularly, but you gotta be quick cos wreckers look for them too.

    r31 diffs will still twist and shear an axle fairly easily. i reckon go the f series diff.

    you will be limited by lsd choices aswell for a r31 diff. either a vl cone type lsd or a detroit locker. the vl diff is just pure shit and the locker will guarantee snapped axles
