G&J charge around the $900 mark to convert to LSD and change to 3.73:1 gears, unless their prices have gone up a bit, good quality work to.

just got 2 quotes for my diff....

G&J Diffs:

LSD with 3.9 gears s/h for $800 or brand new $1100

Preston Autos and Diffs (now in cambelfield :o ):

$1350 for same.

i decided to jump up to 3.9 gears instead tho. i just loved the feeling and launch my old car had with 3.9's so i thought why not lol.

im not sure who to go with. i definately want brand new setup. ive heard alot of good things about Preston A&D.

what do u guys reckon??

i think 3.9 would be too high with a 5 speed IMO. you will only be in 1st gear for a few seconds. also depends if you do any highway kms also.
