Looks like it needs the "Cotton Reel" mount, probably came off an XL7 GV.
As far as I'm aware, they were the only ones that were different.

Yes it's from off of an XL-7 GV :)

Very rare, very strong & desirable :)

You will definetly need the cotton reel mount though :| So run back to ware you got the axle & get this bit as well :-ss

Oh & don't forget the long bolt :-bd

Someone else had one of these rescently, this is only the second or third one of these XL-7 axles I've ever seen so very rare :)

Here's the link to the topic viewtopic.php?f=15&t=11608" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Oh & here's another link that may assist you viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1711" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; :)

Actually you could probaly just buy the mount & the long bolt from a Suzuki main stealer :)

I wonder what the part #'s are & what price Suzuki put on these items :?:

If it is then:

11 = 27550-52D00
12 = 09103-12044
14 = 09112-10020

That was me that had one recently.

When I went to the scrap yard to collect it I made sure I the bracket as well, thats to advice from guys on here.

I have seen this axle on TD GV's as well as XL-7's.

Haven't fitted mine yet, still in the shed. The plan was to fit it when I smash my ali one, just haven't managed it yet!

thanks all for the help & the pic is just the job ive emailed it to the seller of the diff & hopefully they still got the mount.

how does it fasten to the cross member does holes have to be drilled in it as the standard diff only bolts with one bolt in center on the mount

cheers :-bd

The standard diff only has one bolt hole to the bracket, but the bracket is bolted to the cross member by two bolts which are in the same position as your new steel one. :-bd

I have seen this axle on TD GV's as well as XL-7's.
Reminds me of mine :)
Have spoken to the salvage yard who supplied me the axle today and he assures me that the axle has come off a 2003 diesel GV with 30000miles.

He has also helpfully given me the chassis number JSAFTB83V00102260. I wonder if this tells anyone anything. May call the main dealer later and order gasket/seal kit for axle they would probably no.

More importantly he has still got the thing that looks like a cotton reel in a cradle (his words) and the bolt. I will post some photos of it when it lands.
Have just spoken with the parts department @ my local Suzuki dealers Levoi's of Colchester to order new seals for axle. He has said that the chassis number confirms the axle is from a 2003 registered 2.0 diesel 5 speed manual GV.

Wonder if this will help anyone in the future.

Steven.
Thing is they have always been known as the XL-7 front axle & you know how mud sticks :)

Must start looking under later GV's in Tescos car park :)

Rob @ the ORA sells a multi-use sleeve and bush that would do the job.... you'd just need some nice thick box section cut up to suit and welded on the bottom, and the holes drilled and nuts welded above, you could soon make / get one made if you're stuck...

We can help with hole centre measurements and offset for where the mount should sit...

I've got an axle sat on the garage floor with a standard mount we could get measurements off...

All is not lost yet bud' :ymhug:
