Obx LSD fit in a d/r trans?
Posted 25 October 2012 - 09:27 AM
I saw Numbchux LSD fitment issues in his thread and was wondering if the Obx front LSD had been fitted to a d/r trans(Rx specifically).
I'm getting close to picking one up and have a single range trans if need be. I'd hate to find out the hard way that it won't fit tho!

Numbchux - I am following your other thread, I hope you find a resolution. Good Luck!
It should be fine in an RX trans, as the stock low range gearset in that is a 1.19:1, which is much smaller. My Carbonetic front diff has pretty good clearance from the 1.19 gearset, it's the 1.59:1 low range swap that's causing the problem for me.

Yeah the 1.59:1 low range will have an issue clearing the OBX diff - you'll have to shave some of the diff housing off the side opposite the ring gear side (hope this makes sense).
This has been done in a mate's liberty with a H6 powering the EA internals with the 1.59:1 low range and the OBX front LSD. It's going well too. And this is what's being done with my gearbox too. I SO can't wait to have this box in Ruby Scoo!
I believe this has been done in other gearboxes over here but I can't be sure about that and I've not been around them to say how they're going. But if this setup is holding up to the H6 I don't see why it would be an issue - so long as you don't abuse it, just like any gearbox.
