Post Rear MY00 diff for local sale

Hi guys,

I still have a brand new, still-in-box, MY00 rear viscous limited slip differential sitting here. The asking price to only $600 (dealership price is over $1200). The biggest problem, up till know, is that the diff requires MY00 rear axles which Subaru sells for a ridiculous $400 each.

Problem solved.

The Subaru salvage yard that Joel and I go to for parts sells rear axles for only $75 each. At least that's the price I paid for a MY98 axle. They are located in Sacremento but they will ship anywhere.

Their number is: 1-(800) 638-5773
web address is: www.subarusuzukikiaparts.com

I wanted to tell the locals before I put it up for sale again in the classified section.

Are you using a Cusco or just not using the LSD?

I'm interested, I just need to determine the benefits for where I drive. At the Ridgecrest RallyX folks were talking about pros/cons of the limited slip for rallying. What is your view on this?

cheers,

angus

I'm using a Cusco clutch type LSD. This is what I used at Ridgecrest. I was going to try the MY00 LSD first. But I was concern about its longevity/performance in a high hp turbo car. So instead of installing, potentially burning it up, and throwing it way, I'm selling it instead unused.

Pros? Better handling (less plow) during corner exit and trailing brake (more stability). After running an open-diffed RS in an autox yesterday, I would venture to say that a rear LSD is a vital, especially in low speed/low grip situations like a rally/autox.

Cons? None really. That is, until you go into clutch type diffs (like the Cusco I'm using). Only then does the car resist turning-in. This is what I was complaining about at the rallycross. But once sideways, the car handled wonderfully under power. Sicne then, i've installed a fatter rear bar and solved the turn-in problem whichout screwing anything else up.

I've youre going to say naturally aspirated, I think the MY00 diff is the way to go. Gentle enough as to not have any downsides. And agressive enought to actually work. Test drive a MY00, take a few hard U-turns, and see what you think.

Hey Shiv, what us the part number of the unit you are using? Is it a "180" or "160" ones? Did you have to change the axles for your LSD?

Hehe.

I was asking about the CUSCO LSD. What parts # is it? Is it 160 or 180 series diff? The CUSCO one.

Ooops... sorry Imprezer. I've been ignoring this list, not you in particular. I've busy doing some good Rimmer bashing on the tech board The part # for the rear diff is:

27011AA521
--comes standard on a MY00 RS.

Yes, I had to install WRX rear axles for the Cusco diff. I borrowed both from the nice guys at Wings Corp.

I just got off the phone with Tony at Subarusuzuki parts. He insists that Legacy turbo axles will work with the MY00 diff. I've never tried it but he did describe them as having longer, beefier stub axles which is what this diff needs. He has them in stock and he sells them for $50 each. He also sells used/salvaged MY00 LDS for $400. So I think $550 is fair price for a brand-new one.
