The Great Exchange List. What can you put where??

Since it was asked for, let's put this all in one place!! 

If it gets meaty we'll sticky this thread.

I don't have a format in mind, just share what you know.

Front axle assemblies from AWD Montero Sports through 2004 bolt directly in place on Gen 2 and 2.5 Monteros.   Useful for changing gear ratios and eliminating vacuum disconnects.

Springs - early gen 2 springs swapped into a gen1 suddenly give it variable rate coils and a slight lift (mine was an inch) in the back.

Gen 1 front and rear bumpers are direct swaps to gen 2s and vice versa. Measure the widths (flares vs non flares) if aesthetics are important.

my contributions are all for a V6 SWB montero or raider...

the limited slip differential from a 1988 or 1989 Starion is a direct fit for the 1989 and 1990 SWB montero and raider front differential; if you're not seeking lockers, an LSD is a nice upgrade from the stock open differential.

the torsion bars from a 1992 LWB SR are the same length as the stock Tbars on the 1989 and 1990 SWB, but are stronger.

the gen 2 trailing arms are a direct fit for gen 1s with coils and are stronger (re-engineered to eliminate a weak spot).

The moonroof glass and track/motor assembly is a nearly a direct bolt on from gen 2 to gen 1 LWB.  Only 2 bolts (one on each side) need to be removed (with a dremel/angle grinder) from the track to fit.

You donít happen to have detailed pictures of this station lsd do you? I ask because there might be an additional solution not explored yet.

I have pics for before and after, regarding a Starion diff in a Montero front pumpkin. It these might help some.

That would be great. You can PM them if itís more convenient.

You can swap a rear 4.30 limited slip diff from an '01-'02 Montero Limited into an '03-'06 Montero to gain the LSD in the rear (does not interfere with the traction control system's operation).

You can also swap the front and rear 4.90 differentials from an '01-'02 Montero XLS (some rear 4.90s also came with LSD) into the '03-'06 Monteros to compensate for larger tires.
'03 Montero Limited - being repaired slightly faster than it's falling apart (debatable)

This one kindof blows my mind.  Is there pics somewhere of a Gen2 wearing Gen1 bumpers?   :o
