Question Cost to Install Limited Slip Differential?

I'm considering a 2002 RS purchase, but I'm not happy about the lack of a LSD. Any educated guesses as to the cost of purchase/installation? Many thanks!

I am going to assume you just want the rear diff to be LSD, ive seen the upgraded Quaiffe units for around 1400 i believe so maybe low 2000's for the install. The stock factory unit is probably cheaper but im just throwing out guesses.

FYI, Quaife America just dropped their prices after months of racers refusing to pay their ridiculously high prices. (People would import them.)

The Subaru Impreza application is now $995, and yes it was $1395.

Does anyone know if the Quaife units use the Non-Turbo DOJ units or the Turbo DOJ? If you need to get new DOJ units to fit the new rear diff, keep in mind these will run you about $575-$600/pair.

Installing the rear diffs in these cars really isn't all that difficult. Just make sure your shop has experience with this type of work and they should have a problem.

I would greatly prefer a Quaife automatic torque biasing diff to any clutch-type LSD for tarmac use. Besides, the Quaife carries a lifetime warranty versus frequent clutch replacement for the Kaaz.

Anyone that has replaced / re-shimmed clutches in an LSD, and frequently, has to be at least considering Quaife.
