Re: AU diffs?

its most likely locked then, unless it was optioned when new, LSD came with IRS didnt it? if thats right, check for IRS, I could be wrong though

WTF? All AU run a 78 series Borg Warner. Std are live rear axle, XR and up-spec models have IRS. LSD is option on both, std on neither. No factory car will have a "locked" diff. Whine is probably from badly set-up gearset from either the factory or the dealer. Happens on many at about 60k.

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

Ah, It's happening on mine at the moment, started around 60k, I'm now close to 78k, real loud whine when cold.
