Pics of HD rear axle vs stock axle?

Can someone show me a side-by-side or example of a stock defender rear axle and a HD (what I think is a Salsbury??) rear end?

Seems my truck side by side of a NAS D90 yesterday looked different. Just trying to figure out what I got (and subsequently look for spare parts for her!)

TIA

And just to confuse things, 110 and 130 rears from 2002-ish onwards have gone back to a "Rover" style axle:


Not a very good picture, but the casing has a more rounded piece in the middle. Eventhough it looks the same as a D90/disco1/RR classic rear axle, the metal is a good 5 or 6mm thick, very HD and quite heavy (nothing like a salisbury casing though)

And the military "Wolf" XD version has welded on bracings (like the old series axles did... you can buy these as a kit from KAM diffs)


Both of these axles use the short nose "P38" (range rover Mk2) 4 pinion rear differential in it.

To be even more confusing....

Military 90s can have an "HD" Rover style axle. These have a 4 pinion diff and much stronger 24 spline shafts than what are found is regular Rover axles.

so can these be dropped on a civilian trucks? Or do have to replace all the shafts as well?
I don't know terribly much about drive trains and axles.

HD rear axle

I kept the HD rear axle in my xmd-90 but this meant I also had to keep the drum brakes.
The diff I thought the front & rear were the same.
One or the other had a locker added.

You can fit the 4 pin diff into a disc braked axle, and also the shafts. When I did mine I recall I had to re-tap the bolt holes for the drive flanges (it was an early RR disc axle I fitted the stuff into)

Does your 110 NOT have one? I thought they were standard equipment on 110, up until the time that p38 style was put in them.

Correct.... even the series 3 109"'s had them.

All 110's should have them. and 130's, as you say, until the P38 type one came in (2001~2 ish)

There are two types of Salisbury rear too.... standard and HD. only the casing is "HD", stronger (yeah yeah, disc and drum brakes are two other types...)
