    I picked up the diff setup ..
    VX Commodore V8 5.7L (LS1) complete rear cradle etc, with factory LSD (3:07 ratio)

    Fun times ahead...





    At this early stage, I have planned on using the Commodore diff centre, driveshafts, brakes etc, adapted to fit the Peugeot cradle etc..... But now I have the Commodore stuff here, I can really get stuck in to see what the best way to go about doing this..... I may actually be able use the whole commodore cradle modified to fit the 504 chassis... I have alot of work ahead of me

    With my first measurements tho, the Commodore stuff is very wide, ie; the wheel mount face on the hubs are actually wider than the whole rear on the 504.... hahaha Massive flared guards would be needed.....

    I have revised the diff idea. I wont use any of the Commodore cradle/trailing arms.

    I am going to adapt the Commodore hubs/stub axle to mate with the Peugeot trailing arms, keeping somewhat factory geometry..... The custom length driveshafts will be made from cut down axles from commodore/falcon/R31 soild axle diff's, and re-splined at one end....

    Thanks Ben.

    If the thread seems a little out of whack, to this point I have just copied and pasted from the past month etc from my build thread on the Peugeot forum, but you get the idea...

    I will try to keep this thread up to date from now on too.

    95% percent of people dont realise how good these cars actually handle. I can tell you, in standard form, the shit all over AE86s...... There, I said it. And I stand by what I say
    You only need to look at how much these cars dominated rallies for decades.......
    Even with shit tyres, their road holding/cornering ability defies physics......

    These things are NOT A FRENCH COMMODORE ! Make no comment unless you have driven one in anger ! . Particularly a modded rally set up car. They are quicker than you think both in handling and in preformance. If Jo Jo can retain/improve the handling and the added ompf of the 1UZ , this thing will be a drivers car (par excellence). Almost as good as a 1uz powered AE86 maybe ?????

    Funny you mention a "french Commodore" Bob, but I am actually possibly considering the thought of a LS1 and T56 box......

    The price has come down on them a bit. At this stage, the engine choice will come down to what comes up at the right price, but I won't be 100% selecting a motor untill I have finished the Commodore rear drivetrain and rear suspension, as this is the hardest part of the build to get right.....

    Making an engine fit will be the easiest part, so I am leaving it untill last

    Ok, so I have begun work on the rear setup....

    COMMODORE TRAILING ARM AND HUB-




    I have cut the hub bearing carrier section off the Commodore trailing arm-




    After the rough cut off the trailing arm, I have had my machinist machine the bearing carrier section true flat on the inner side-



    Like this-










    BEFORE AND AFTER-
