Hello all

I'm looking into fixing my large Salisbury diff, VB sedan, after it went bang many years ago.
I have a spare wagon housing here, I will us the centre and pinion into the sedan housing but I'm unsure on who has the best bearings to use.

I've seen a seller on eBay have listings for LH-LX and HQ-WB, but apparently neither of these can fit a Commodore VB-VK 5 litre

I would like to know a good brand so i can go to my local and order a set in.

Also, how easy is it to obtain a set of 28 spline axle bearings, I'm not sure if its part of the diff bearing kit.

All bearings on HQ through to VK large Salisbury should be the same, bar the retainer on cab chassis axle bearings.

I believe GMH has used both of these brands in our Holdens and packaged as Genuine replacement parts and I reckon you can't go wrong with either.
FAG is another brand GMH has supplied as spare parts in the past but from memory they were made in Brazil.
