  • LSD's

    I keep getting tons of mixed info every time I'm searching for this and haven't even found a solid answer here....
    I bought a Nismo 1.5 way LSD and was gonna install it into my oem S13 diff housing and I'm now seeing some info saying that you need different output shafts than the OEM shafts. So I'm debating selling this and buying an R32 helical or S15 helical... With those I know you need diff output shafts and I know which ones to get. Anyway, can anyone confirm if I need different output shafts to install this Nismo LSD?

    The output shafts are different lengths than stock. See below:

      I bought my nismo LSD new, and it came with new output shafts.

      Not sure how they compare to stock though.

      They were also 5 bolt, so I had to buy axles, too.

        Ya, mine didn't come with shafts.

          I need to do some reading up on all the different types of LSDs to figure out what I need to use...

            ^^^ What do you want to use the LSD for? There have been a few good threads in NRR on LSDs.

            I had no major issues with my HLSD, but have a Nismo 1.5 now and am enjoying everything about it with the exception of the clunking in the pits.

              McCoy, I think you should test out the MotoIQ 'WPC coat everythang' mantra and report back. I really can't imagine it making a huge difference back there...

              We WPC treated the clutch plates. WPC treating makes an amazing difference in diff smoothness, noise, wear and temperature. This is a must do mod for any LSD!

                I read that too and *sigh*ed. My GT is loud as hell.

                  I'll take the car to AutoX, occasional road course and occasional drag strip. I'm not going to be doing any real points events with it but I do want it to perform well.

                    I think if you're going to log a lot of street time you'll be better served be the HLSD. If it's a track only car the noise of a clutch type shouldn't be so much of a problem and it might help put power down better in certain situations (i.e. lifting rear inside wheel).

                      I agree with your last sentence and can live with the noises as I drive the car only to/from events anymore.

                          Yeah, my comment was a joke more than anything because I'm skeptical that the cost and effort will be rewarded with much.

                            Yes, I think Kojima and crew must get a huge hookup from them though.

                              It all depends if it's for a OE open/non-vlsd case, or a vlsd case, and then getting the right LSD for that.

                              I have had a 1.5 since about day one with my car, and aside from it being a little raunchy/loud at times, I've learned to deal with it. Only major issues are on some super low speed turns in parking lots/roads you may feel it clunk, but it all depends on throttle...not saying you need to drive around it, but some things require more input just to keep it nice.
