Today I pulled my LSD to bits because the torque required to turn one raised wheel with the other on the ground is way less than 68Nm. I'm going to go to holden this week to get the replacement parts to tighten it up again. What I wanted to know is what are the cone clutches like when they're brand new? I was expecting mine to look really tired but they seem ok (still got a reasonable amount of the spiral tread on them). Is there another component that can cause the LSD to be loose? The thrust springs seem ok but I'll replace them too. Will holden be able to fix me up with stiffer than standard springs inorder to get it really tight or does anyone know of another method (such as using thicker or multiple thrust washers)? Are the springs and cones the only things I need to replace to get it tight again (I'm not going to replace any bearings)? What about shims?
