E-series 3.45 LSD Diff..

Hey guys, i took the car down to the workshop today, and got the mechanic to look at my diff.. Lately, i've only been able to spin one wheel, while the other wheel just stays asleep..

So, i took it down, got the guy to check it out, and he reckons that it's just wear and tear, and that the clutches are worn. All normal..

Now, what i want to know is whether or not i can rebuild the diff, and what the costs are, or whether it's a good idea to just buy a new one.. He said that i'd get a long time out of the diff the way it is, and that's it's not broken. Well, i regard the diff as being broken when both wheels no longer spin. Defeats the purpose of having an LSD in it..

So what's your experience with diffs, if any?

Cheers,
Yaggy

Try servicing it. I had the same problem in my EA Ghia 3.23 LSD, changed the oil and it was like new. Made it a hell of a lot quieter as well!

The cones inside the diff usually flog out too so they might be worth checking out and replacing.

Chuck 4.11s in there, it will at least help your craving for getting torque down to the tarmac :s6:

Can I ask how much it cost you? Mine is getting quite noisy - in regards to a whine at about 50km/h.

just replace the oil in it, easy enough. make sure you put the specified oil in them though.

Yeah when mine was making noise, I replaced the oil with some synthetic diff oil and it made a huge difference, much better lsd opperation and very quiet.

I think it cost me about $35, that was like 2 years ago.
