    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...

    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.

    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.

    Hey John,

    I didn't read every post on this but if you're looking for diff lock I think you could just swap rear axle's with a DD51T that has diff lock and you'd be all set, it's the exact same truck and diff lock was pretty easy to find on the 90s models.

    I called Phantom grip and they sent me a diagram of the measurements they need. They also said they would need a photo of the differential and they would see if they had one on the shelf that matched the dimensions needed or make it from scratch. The starting price is $200 and went up depending on model of limited slip and type of diff. diff.JPG

    For sure,
    A complete kit for a few hundred bucks could make a lot of guys happy.
    Especially for the front diff.
    I still say the Jamar is the way to go but, I'd check out videos to the contrary...

    I am interested to know if you have a front limited slip for 94 carry. Or locker. Although I would rather have the limited slip. We have miles and miles and hundreds of miles of terrain like spanner shows in his video. A limited slip would save me some foot work hahaha. Thanx
