Ride: BA XR6

Location: sydney
NSW, Australia

no im not after drugs, ive got a ba xr6 its fitted with a slip diff, i want to track down a LSD.
what should i be looking for as in the whole diff or just the center. also if i source one from a xr6t, is the gear ratio different and if so is it geared more to acceleration or high speed.
thanks

All XR6s ever from my knowledge came with an LSD so why it has a single pegga is pretty strange to me.
You might as well try ebay, a wreckers or pay a drive line guy to source a center and fit it

ba xr6's did not come standard with an lsd, they were an option. they are also a smaller diff compared to the xr6t and xr8- i believe from memory the xr6's have an M-78 and the xr6t-xr8 have a M-86 the cv shafts are smaller too. id suggest to get an lsd center and make sure its out of an xr6t. and get it rebuilt at the time when u buy it as its too common that they get alot of back lash and need to be rebuilt (mine had to be done)

M86 needs: Cradle, Halfshafts, Tailshaft. Get an AU IRS LSD centre.

they phased out LSD's to save costs. plus they reckon the fitment of traction control will compensate

Not this. Otherwise XR6 Turbo, XR8 and FPV wouldn't have LSD's

Not quite, LSD's are now only fitted to the Performance range, so XR6T, F6, GT, GS. It was a cost cutting measure, and also, how many XR6 Fleet/Rental cars need an LSD? That is the main sales for the car, so give them what they need, if they want more, pay for it.
