Question Lsd

Do all mkiii supras come with independent rear suspension, or only ones with LSD? My supra has independent rear suspension but no LSD tag, and I have a diff that does have the LSD tag..so should I swap it out? Any help is appreciated

All MK3's are independent rear suspension. I think MK2's are as well. i would suggest you put the LSD on, it makes the car launch a lot better.

N/A's had the option of getting a LSD. I believe it came standard with the sports package (TEMS suspension, headlight washers, and the LSD).

Well, I know it's not a cold state thing cuz when I lived in California most of the MKIII's there had the washer jets for the headlights...

I'm not sure if it's true for all years of MKIII's, but the earlier ones (like 87's) were all exported from Japan (as in not made anywhere else). They were just built with different specs for different markets.
