LSD good or bad?

ive been looking for a 3.45 lsd diff to go into my ef i6 but it'll cost a small fortune, however i can get the 3.45 put into my car for 450 with 3 year warrenty inc labor and all spedo gears...
now some poeple how been telling me that the lsd diff puts more strain on your gearbox and other driveline components... so is there any particular reason to get lsd and if soo is it worth the extra $500? btw its just a daily driver car too

Thanks
Kurt

3.45 LSD for $450!!!! That is a damn good deal is that just for installation or including the diff? because if that is including then it's a awesome deal.

Re: LSD good or bad?

personally i would never have a rearwheel driven car again without an LSD diff. Apart from the fact that they are heaps of fun, 3.45's would be really easy to ark up and be a one wheel hero. Stuff being in the wet, and if you need to get anywhere in a hurry. I spose it bad enough anyways, but go the LSD

Most diffs with high ratios are LSD's, but thats from my shithouse knowledge

Re: LSD good or bad?

LSD was by far the best mod I've done. Sooooo much more traction. Not to mention fun in the wet!

Re: LSD good or bad?

Re: LSD good or bad?

LSD wont put any real extra strain on the driveline and gearbox unless you are going to go trying or intending to pull burn outs at every opportunity, but even an open diff will strain things in that case, the LSD will be more than worth it in the long run, you wont regret spending the extra money, well thats my opinion.
