WK owner needs to pick your brains!!

I have an 05 Grand. Does the WK and the XK share the same rear axle?

I am trying to find out if a 29 Spline, 8.25" rear locker will fit into my rear axle.

I found this on your website?

Quote:
What are the technical stats on the rear axle? What kind of suspenion geometry is it set up with?

The 4x4 Commander has a C213R (Corporate 8 1/4). The ring gear diameter is 213mm or about 8 3/8". It is a full floating design which means that the axle shaft doesn't carry the weight of the vehicle - it has a unit bearing at the wheel end. The ELSD version with QuadraDrive II has the torque capacity of a locking differential.

The suspension design is a 5-link which includes 4 control arms and a track bar.
What is the difference between the Corporate 8 1/4 number and the 8 3/8" number. How are they different but in the same Axle?

I found another WK owner who thinks the rear Axle on the WK is a C213R 8.27" Axle.

Is the C213R actually a 8.25" or an 8.27" Axle?

Looking forward to your replies!
