LSD is just the centre.

You can either:

1) buy an entire second hand LSD diff housing and drop it into your car
2) buy an entire second hand LSD diff housing and have a diff specialist swap your centers for $300
3) take your car to a diff specialist, and have them install a brand new LSD center for you for around $1000-$1500.

I personally bought an entire diff containing a second hand LSD with 3.73 gears from a wagon for $500, and then had a specialist drop that center into my car for $200.

$500 for a 5000km old 1.5 way KAAZ LSD (with receipts) and 3.73 diff gears - and he threw in the almost-new brake rotors on either end. I think that's a goddamn bargain for a nearly $1800 setup.

We're not talking an old sloppy viscous LSD. This thing skips like a locker in carparks under light throttle.

+1. Wtf??? Oh, it was posted at 3.15 am - way past Zuicider's nighty night time. That's a post that could have waited till morning, methinks.

Morton - your wagon LSD centre fitted the VQ independent rear end - have I got that right?

The Wagon diff housing (what Mortons is from) is different so he only used the centre
