Rear Axle... Size...Gearing...Material?

I was doing a parts drill down on stevewhiteparts.com and found that there are up to 4 different rear axles available! 195mm, 215mm, 225mm, and 230mm

I've read that some are aluminum and some are cast steel.

I'm thinking:

195mm = V6 AWD

215mm = V6 RWD

225mm = V8 4WD

230mm = V8 RWD

So if one were to "build" a WK2 for offroading 230mm (or largest cast steel) axle would be best.

Anyone know what gearing/material came from the factory for the above configurations?
