Has anyone tightened their AU LSD?

I have the LSD in the car already, and it's OK in a straight line, but it still feels like the clutches could be shimmed a bit tighter. Acouple of times, the ute's been sliding nicely out of a corner, then it turns into a damn one-legger. I know that this is no big deal in a 9" diff. (I did it a few times in the XY before I got the spool). Is it any drama with the AU diffs?

Thanks for any info.

AU LSD generally start to lose effectiveness after about 2000km from new. Internal tolerances are not good enough, nor is the oil specified for them.

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