I saw an 83 Celica GT 5-speed in the junkyard the other day and I decided to look underneath to see what it had for a rear suspension and differential. Turns out that the diff. housing appears to be identical to the diff. housing in the MKII. The cover is slightly different but the housing sure looks the same. I wonder what lurks inside behind the cover?? I didn't get the axle code off the firewall plate. :roll: Anyone have any clues?

GT or a GT-S with independent suspension? If it's the latter, the diff will bolt in the same, but I'm not sure if the gearing is the same. If its not independant, the pod wont attatch to the axles the same, and it won't work.

I'm pretty sure in 83 they used the smaller 6.7" rear end instead of the 7.5" that is in the '85 celica GTSs and all the supras. Definitely find the firewall code to make sure but I don't think it'll work.

82-84 IRS Celicas should be the 6.7" diff which looks really small compared to the already small Supra 7.5" diff.
