Default mkiii lsd differential

Does anyone know if you can weld an lsd? i like the sound that the 240s make like the screeching of the tires and i want that on my 87 supra.

stay with LSD in my personal opinion its better than a welded rear end...
maby if you had an open differential it would be alright...

I'll swap you a rear end you could weld up -or i will weld it up for you, for the LSD you have, assuming the LSD works
I'm just downin Fresno, i can make the drive to swap with you!

Really if you want the testosterone, stud American car, buy it!

i doubt there would be any performance differences other than the wear on your rear tires.
in a 4x4 this is what you want... in a car LSD would be the better idea for sure

Then rebuild the LSD with a strong preload; Completely sacrificing hard cornering traction is a waste. Kids.... </old fart commentary>
