LSD diff Help

I have noticed my lsd diff to slip to the one wheel when going round corners and stuff.. I have heared a few things on the subject like i gotta get my clutches done and that the bearings are stuffed and need replacing.
Does anyone know the reason for this and how much it is gonna cost? coz i dont really wanna lock it...

Try changing the oil to the the 100% synthetic Castrol stuff (SAF-XA I think), worked wonders for mine.

if it's in your ea, it's your lsd, which is a cone setup.

this is pretty common to wear out.

prob around $200 to $300 to correct.

or you can buy my complete disc brake lsd diff for $220

Same here, the synthetic oil really makes the diff tight.

Re: LSD diff Help

is it different to how it used to be or has it always been like that?

if your EA has stock suspension when hauling into corners you might get enough body roll to unload the inner tyre enough that the LSD cant cope.

my car used to do that sometimes with stocko suspension (EB XR6) though the diff was still nice and tight when you had the car on a hoist and checked it, but after i lowered it...well, lets just say its much much better...

and yes TTNOS8 i agree with you, i drove my mates EB GLi in the rain a while ago, and its bloody scary, the amount of control you have over an LSD-equipped car is unbelievably more than with an open centre!
