    is it normal for a full lock lsd to produce a hard 'kicking' sound when doing a low speed turn or corner?

    how to tell if the lsd is already worn?

    is there any other way to reduce the 'kicking' sound? (any recommended lsd gear oil that will reduce the noise?)

    btw i'm using an aftermarket full lock lsd in an e3 gbox (when buying my e3 halfcut) since the drive shafts length are same as the standard evo driveshafts.

    does the sound of yours 'knocks' hard when u do a turn at low speed?

    mine always producing the kicking sound and knocks at low speed turns and never get 'softer' even the oil heats up.

    however, if applying a full or high enough throttle, the lsd will 'lock" both drive shafts and no sounds or kicking at all.

    ur r33 full lock lsd installed at the gearbox in front or at the rear differential?


    thnks 4 sharing by th way...

    my kaaz lsd produced same sound... knocking ... gets worst when oil heats up... the only way i bring the noise down is to use Lubeguard lsd treatment.... the one like toothpaste... it helped quite alot... however after seriously heated up it still clunk.... or maybe u should adjust your way of driving like throttle off during slow turn and give gas only when your car is straight...
