Subaru R160 LSD differential

Recommended Posts

You can however convert it to work with your 4:444 gears in the rear diff though.....

 

Do a search for LSD conversions in the Archives.....

an 83 GL wagon has a 3.9 ratio.

The 3.9 gear can be put on that LSD to make it a 3.9. To make it a 4.11 or 4.44, the center section has to be modified to accept the larger bolts that the 4.11 and 4.44 gear require.

VLSD do not work well in offroaders. Do not lock under low speed applications.

The VLSD chunk is a little more compact than the other.

 

This old thread is proof the search button works. Awesome to see folks using it.

They work great from MOST offroading. I.E. Mud, snow, sand, gravel roads. The one place where they are not as good as a clutch pack is rock crawling.

 

I spend more time in mud and snow than rock crawling and the VLSD works great for that. That is why the VLSD is used in the newest and best Subies.
