Hi thought I'd do a bit about the way I fitted my diff as it came from a granada I think it's a 7.5 inch diff and the sierra diff is a 7 inch.

In a nutshell it doesnt fit the standerd chassis with the book mounting brackets (no matter how loud you shout and swear jiggle and hammer :x )
so this is what i have done

As you look from the back of the chassis the right hand bracket that fits on the diff is ok and all the holes will line up ,the left ends up at a bit of an angle,so instead of making a left hand bracket make two right hand brackets you can now mount the new right hand bracket to the chassis which will leave a gap between diff and bracket i made two spacers to fill gaps and found a longer bolt from my doner strip down, i will also use the rear mounting holes just to be on the safe side, put a couple of pics so you can get the idear



Hope this makes some sort of sense

Thank you for sharing that solution.

Very neatly done. :) 8-)

The last Sierra that a stripped a couple of months back was fitted with a 7.5" diff ( Late 93 model )

I thought there was some light at the end of the tunnel then someone switched it off.

Ronnie :D
