    Rear ones are the same, fronts are different because one comes out the gbox and the other out the ird. Can't remember for definate but I think i used a def hub box spanner to tap it in with.

    According to microcat online they don't list any chassis number variations so it is safe to say they are the same for all fl1s

    only the inside of diffs changed and so if the casing is all the same then the seals would be 2


    also if you have a towbar fitted and a jack that goes high enough you can change them without loosing fluid :)

    i did it but be very careful if you do it that way lol
