Axles

There are two types of axles – tripod (regular s-body axles) and Rzeppa style (z32, skylines, q45 etc). Rzeppa ones are stronger due to bigger contact patch inside the cv joint.

S13, S14, S15, J30, Z32 NA, Z33, R32, R33 GTST – smaller shaft splines (29 spline, 30mm)
Q45, Z32 TT, R33 GTR, R34 GTR – bigger shaft splines (32 spline, 32.5mm OD)

S13, S14, S15, J30 (94+) – tripod cv joints
J30 (pre 94), Q45, Z32, Z33, R32 GTR, R33 GTR – Rzeppa style cv joints

R33 GTR non V-spec shafts are threaded with clearance holes on the diff output shafts, V-spec axles are not threaded and diff output shafts are threaded.

44 thoughts on “Nissan R200 diff ratios + drivetrain info

  1. Hi, could you supply information on the dimensions of the r200 pinion and ring gears.
    Or the compatibility of the r200 and c200 gears
    Regards,
    Levi

    • Hi,

      R200 and C200 both are 200mm in diameter and are interchangable in R200/C200 case. Please note that there are long-nose and short-nose diffs available so you have to find a matching pair to swap over. Internal differential unit is the same as well, the only difference is the locking type (open/vlsd/clutch type) and output shafts length and snap/lock ring.

  2. could you please tell me the spline count and diameter of s14 stub axles out of viscous lsd . are they 30 spline and 31mm dia. thanks Russel

  3. Hi
    Do you know if abs diffs ring and pinion from s14 fits to non abs cassing r33 Rb25det i looking for 3.69 ratio

  4. Hi there!Does anybody know which diff with 4.36 final ratio will be easier to fit on my EDM S14 Silvia? What do i need for this swap actually?

    • European SR20 Serena’s had 4.36 diffs with vlsd in them so it’s bolt on using your S14 rear diff cover.

  5. The R33 Vspec and R34 Vspec use the R200 differential with hydraulic lockup via the ATTESA pump. The only car that I know of that uses the R230 is the Z32TT.

  6. Are the Diff gears interchangeable from a R33 GTR 4.11 and Z33 3.357
    I know both are R200’s

    • No, Z33 has a complete different casing and crown gear height so it is not interchangeable. It’s only called R200 because of crown wheel diameter still being 200mm.

  7. Will the gear set from a (2004-2007 R51 Pathfinder 2WD – R200 – 3.133) fit into the Q45 R200 housing?
    If not what housing will they fit into?

    Will the axles from the Q45/Z32TT work with these gears as well?

    • No, R51 Pathy R200 ring and pinion fits 350Z case (different gear height/pinion offset). Q45 uses the regular R200 gears.
      Q45/Z32TT axles works with all 6×1 stubs, also 350z ones.

    • You can use OEM F5800 or F5880 ring and pinion from Nissan Caravan E25 C200 axle, or you can find aftermarket 4×4 units that offroad guys fit to R200A front diffs.

  8. Hai,i have r180 at front diff and c200 at rear diff,my question,is that possible or can i change front diff to R200? Btw my ratio 4.6 right now.tq

    • You can fit FWD R200 diff with the same ratio as a R180 one, make sure you have the correct gearing and casing!

  9. Question, I have a R200V Q45 FY33 – 3.692, will a S15 Silvia SPEC R Helical LSD differential work in the Q45 case and would I be able to use the Q45 gears and 6x1output shafts / stubs?

    • S15 LSD will fit in Q45 case but you will have to use S15 stub shafts because of different length, or modify Q45 ones to fit the lsd unit.

  10. Will the GEAR set from a (2004-2007 R51 Pathfinder 2WD – R200 – 3.133) fit into the R33 v-spec differential?I wood like to take down my ratio from 4,111.

    • R51 rear diff has different pinion height and crown offset so it fits large case R200 case like 350z. You should find some regular case diff for example Gloria Y32 VG30 AT 3.133

      • For me, it may be easier to grind my drives to 3,133 to find a differential from a Y32;(
        Are there any other options?
        I have searched a bit to find that the differential from 350z AT has another pinjong ET an MT (meaning to mount the contents from r51 in 350z AT?). and changing hubs from 350z to r33 GTR v-spec seem to work because they share measurements of splines.
        and if they do not work then I have to mount 350z differential on my subframe and do fine on 3.357

  11. OK.since I having a r51 lying around i will give it a try.The first problem is that a ball bearing the pinion is thicker (35 vs 45mm) – no problem for me to fix.Hopefully i will get back the parts soon, after it comes I see if I have to process the crown, hopefully i can shims the content aside. I will keep you informed.

  12. Want to put a 3.3 ratio in my r32 gtr diff (red application), what do I need? (500kw 2jz with v161 6 speed )

    • your best option is to use 38100-08M60 47/14 3.357 JHG50 President VH45D R200 diff if you want to keep your current R200 case.

  13. First…THANK YOU! I have a R200V Q45 FY33 – 3.692. I want to keep my 6×1 side flange pattern for custom CV shafts. What are my options for 1.5 mechanical LSD?

    • It is a regular R200 unit with 30 spline output shafts so there are many products from companies like CUSCO, KAAZ, OS GIKEN etc.

  14. They don’t have them as I have checked over and over. Only 29 or 31 but not 30 for an R200 unless you have info I don’t. I checked with Quaife sales and they don’t eiither. Got a part Cusco part number?

  15. Hi, Where should I pull a 4.08 and 4.36 final drive that\\’ll fit to R200 z34 MT pumpkin ? Thank you!

  16. hi,

    i have a nissan s15 adm manual turbo, i have put in a Nismo GT LSD Pro 1.5&2 Way RSS15D5 (https://www.rhdjapan.com/nismo-gt-lsd-pro-1-5-2-way-w-lsd-oil-rss15d5.html)

    its still the standard 3.69, is it possible to put in something higher like a 4.11 or something near as i have a rb25 5 speed and its quite laggy.

    i dont want to loose my nismo gt pro and nismo half shafts. what crown and pinion can i put in that will match? just dont want to lose the nismo internal.

    thanks in advance.

    • Yes, it is possible. S15 is a regular R200 diff case so all S13/S14/R32/R33 diff ratios fits yours. Just swap the required ring and pinion to your case and keep nismo gt pro lsd unit with shafts.
      Make sure you hand this job to a skilled mechanic, because correct shimming of the diff is really important and will fuck up all internals if done wrong. There’s lots of incomplete guides online!

  17. hi,i have a nissan s15 adm manual turbo, i have put in a Nismo GT LSD Pro 1.5&2 Way RSS15D5 (https://www.rhdjapan.com/nismo-gt-lsd-pro-1-5-2-way-w-lsd-oil-rss15d5.html)its still the standard 3.69, is it possible to put in something higher like a 4.11 or something near as i have a rb25 5 speed and its quite laggy. i dont want to loose my nismo gt pro and nismo half shafts. what crown and pinion can i put in that will match? just dont want to lose the nismo internal.thanks in advance.

  18. Hi,Thanks for really extensive and usefull information of r200. I need as low as possible ratio to my r32 with BMW M3 gearbox. Any idea where to find y32 gloria diff gears? Or any other 3.xx ratio which fit to r32 r200. I am currently fitting the M3 rear diff, but would prefer the r200.Regards Mika

  19. Hi, thanks for the really informative page!I would like to use original r32 rear diff and find a lowest possible ratio to it. What are my options to get it to high 2.xx or low 3.xx. I noticed that Y32 would have 3.133, but is there any place where to find those?regards Mika

    • that’s exactly what I’m after, but that vehicle was never available in Australia?
      And 4wd guys only want 5+ gears so I don’t think it will be an option.

      What country is the Y32 popular in? ebay from overseas best option?

      • Cedrics were mainly sold in Japan so yahoo auctions and japan car and parts exporters would be the best place to start looking for Y32 parts

  20. Richard I am looking to go lower on my 2003 z33 350z m/t rear diff. Where would be the best place to look for gears. Is there any that interchange with this rear end. I am new to this but want more performance, not necessarily top end.

    • you can fit 3.133 ring and pinion from R51 Pathfinder, this one is late style R200 used in 350z cases

  21. Hello! Thank youuu so much for this page, it is greatly appreciated. I have a hc33 91\’ laurel rb20det with rear hicas delete. I am looking to replace the rear axles but am not certain if i can straight swap the s13 axles to what I already have. My last resort would be swapping everything from my current s13, but would like to know for future before doing the swap. Any and all information is appreciated. Thank you!

    • check what axles do you currently have on your laurel, they should be 5×1 or 3×2 bolt pattern. If bolt pattern matches your S13 ones then you should be good to swap them over.

  22. Hi,And thanks for the info supplied.Do you know if Fx35 3.69 differential will fit z33? Are there any plug&play solutions for getting 3.9 or close on z33?Thanks,Justin3

    • Z33, G35, FX35 and FX45 all uses same size ring and pinion so you should be able to interchange some parts from one to another. not sure about the whole diff swap compatibility.
