Should I do the 5sp D/R swap in my 84 wagon?
Posted 29 July 2003 - 05:18 PM
To those in the know:
Is it true that 5sp D/R's are AWD, or are they part-time like the 4sp D/R's?
Do you really need an LSD to save your diff's, or just matching gear ratios front & rear? I suppose if they're AWD, you'd have to have an LSD to run on pavement, huh?
Lastly, for those of you that have performed the swap, does it positively or negatively effect performance when coupled with a stock EA81?
I'm hoping that 5sp D/R's operate the same as 4sp D/R's. I don't think I want full-time 4wd. Thanks!!!

2 wheel drive (yuck)
2wd/4hi/4low (standard dual range 5 speed)
4hi/4low/locking center diff ("THE" RX transmission. 1987-89.. full time 4wd)
2wd/4wd "turbo traction" (push button / on demand 4wd, single range)
4wd full time single range, locking center diff
you need matching ratios only. LSDs are upgrades and can be altered to fit your ratio.
