    After reading indianajasons post another thought came to mind, since the EB has seperate cables from each rear wheel going into one cable. Half the work is already done for the rear. I'd rather install a LSD or weld it up, it depends on what you can afford. This thread has went way off base from the original starter post but it would make a good discussion topic for a thread of it's own.

    Best way would be to use electric line locks. Still a bit cumbersome though.

    I will install them for you. Some of the Suz. have a chunk with 4 spider gears in them. These will not work with the limited slip kits Call me in about 3 months. 205 755-4094

    To put it another way- it acts like a brake, to help the axle gears turn at the same rate, not one faster than the other. I haven't seen any difference in turning. Price for two kits at once-$560. Allan

    All it'll do is make your diff slightly stiffer. It might help with a cold diff on ice but as soon as the lubricant heats up it'll do its job... which is to lubricate NOT to stiffen. It's like trying to pull a car with chewing gum, sure it'll do something but it's not up to the task of actually pulling the car.

    Lol ok I didn't think it would work but my father is a lil hard headed so I got to ask lol. But on another note is there a way of know if the lsd kit will work with out opening the rear diff? I heard allens will work with 2 ring gears or something but not with 4 or something like that thanks guys

    What? No you have to open the rear diff to put in the LSD. You replace a piece of it...
  16. firejonny89

    firejonny89 Member

    ok so i put in the lsd kit i got every thing put back to gather but i still got to fill up the diff and bleed brake lines it took me and dad prolly 4 hours(we had no clue how to take the rear diff apart) i had to take my brake covers most the way off for my axle to come loose but once i figured it out it was off and the chunk layin in my heads in 10 mins. i would have taken pixs but i had rearend oil to my elbows tomorrow i will take it for a test drive once i lub her back up and bleed the brakes:frustration:

    I bought them from a golf course that i used to work for. while i was the equipment manager, i had purchased a total of 25 of them and have since distributed the majority to other properties in the company... i kept the last few and standing parts inventory for myself. originally purchased from Robert henshaw company (10 in 1989 and another 15 in 1995) who dealt in golf equipment such as jacobsen. I'm going to put my blown up front end back together and sell them off soon if anyones interested... 2 gently beaten mitsu's with a wall full of parts bins...

    I would like to purchase a set of these for the rear. I have a 1996 Daihatsui single cam mini truck. Can someone send me the price and contact info for purchasing these.

    It works like a clutch between the axle gears. It is a limited slip, not a locker. It made a huge difference for mine and i have a front kit on the way.

    I hate to drag up an old thread, but it IS stickied. Allen replied back to me just last week, saying he will not supply any more LSD kits, and would not provide any information on where he bought them.

    Those of you that bought kits, happen to save or write down any box or part numbers, stampings, manufacturer's labels, or anyway to help get these back into our hands, a great many owners would be delighted.

    I think i was one of the first to be involved with his kits and had great success with them. he hand made all of them. there were no manufacturd parts involved outside of the screws and spring washers that were used to create the pressure between the gears. There are pictures of the install/kit that i shared with the forum, in my gallery. you'll have to measure the space between the gears and have something machined from a tool steel or something comparably hardened/treated.

    richmond adapted their powertrax locker to work for the minitruck in this link [video=youtube;6S_RlT-Hon0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6S_RlT-Hon0[/video] http://www.richmondgear.com/02powertrax.html I figured it wouldn't be too much of a stretch for phantom grip to adapt one of their limited slip kits to work in our minitrucks.
