Default Help! Buying a V2 rear for my V1 what to check??

Well I screwed up and forgot my wrench set at home before I took off to work this morning, and I won't be able to go back before I head off

Anyone know what size the bolt is to drain diff lube? Really wanna check that before I buy.

Secondly the guy is saying that it came from an auto car (3.42 sucks but I'm getting a smoking deal) are there any cast numbers or tags to prove that it came from a V car instead of just a regular 2nd Gen CTS?

Do you know what it takes to bolt in? Or do you already have a V2 cradle?

Yeah to an extent, I've been doing a lot of reading. It ended up checking out, and I feel like I stole it.

Got all this for $500. It came from an auto V2 which is 3.42 and I don't mind that. It's eventually getting an LSA so maybe a taller gear won't make 1st completely useless.

I will do a detailed build/swap thread with pictures as I add parts.

Also ordered this piece. Thinking about ordering 2 cause of the limited run.

Now I just gotta figure out how to change the lug pattern on the Aztek front hubs, cut some V1 springs and I should be able to put this heavy sucker in by the end of the month

It's based off if everything I've found in here. I would normally do the full 5x115 swap but I already have two good sets of 6x115 with good tires.
