I'm talking about a R33... are all the suspension parts the same on the RB25 engined cars (DE and DET)

what about the breaks?

suspension I am not sure, however i know the hubs are different as n/a runs 4 stud not 5 stud also brakes are only 2 pot on the gts not sure on the rb25de's though but i know on a 20e they are 2 pot callipers, thats all i can think of at the minute will update if i remember any other differences.

The half shafts are different( I dont doubt you know the gear box and front prop is) and I assume the diff is because of the half shafts.
Suspension is same I believe.
Steering rack of series 1 is different from series 2 in r33s..not a lot of people know that

Apparently the gts had the LSD as an option, which is the same as an auto gtst diff.

Towards the bottom right, where it says RC**. On an auto gtst you should see RC43 stating what diff it has, on a manual gtst it's RC41 instead. I assume a gts with RC43 on the plate would suggest it has the 4.3:1 LSD diff as fitted to the auto gtst. I think the normal non turbo diff is RC35. I could be wrong though, just going from what I've been told.

RB20e Had 4 x 114.3 Hubs and Single Pot Callipers I know the RB25DE had slightly bigger brakes not 100% sure what the spec was but I know they are also 4 x 114.3 Hubs

Again don't know about the RB25de but the RB20E Front and Rear Prop and Gearbox's are different to the GTST on R33 Not sure about 32 think they are the same ;)
