Axle should be the same, assuming its the original from the car and the car was a 1600 or larger engine. If so you can get an LSD fitted, just remember there are 2 different types of diff one for the 3:44 ratio and one for the 3.67 or 3.9 ratios.

I've just finished a disc brake kit that will be available for sale very soon using mk4 astra calipers and discs
