Unhappy 4.444 Limited slip diff

I have been searching for a 4.444 LSD for my Liberty/Legacy project for quite a while now but to no avail. Any info on where to look would be appreciated.

Sorry if this post is not in the right classification area.

Use a 3.90 LSD, but change out the pinion for the one from a 4.11 or 4.44. Or go all out and put a 3.70LSD in a 3.90 ring gear with the 4.11/4.44 pinion.

Subaru only makes 2 ring gears, and two pinions, so you have to mix and match to get the 4 ratios Subaru uses. 3.70,3.90,4.11, and 4.44.

Very interesting about the gear sets that are used.

I know where there is a 4.444 open centre that I have been thinking about getting and doing the limo swap thing. I was just hoping to find a 4.444 set up, as the whole system will be newer than picking up a 3.700 out of an RX or something like that.

LSD is one thing and can be fitted to any ratio you choose, front (or) and rear.
Diff combos are apart and YES you can find the 4.44 combo for front and rear to be fitted with or without LSD. Anyway I do stock the 4.44 set if you want it(dont have the LSD though).

Sorry to sound ignorant, but what do those numbers mean?

8Complex, no worries about the signature. I am new to the board and willing to conform to the way you do things.

Geoff, look at the transmission links here-- tells you what JDM models had what: http://www.i-club.com/ubb-files/Foru...ML/000125.html

mrbell-- 4.444 = 4.44:1 ratio, which means the input shaft turns more than 4 times per turn of the output shaft. This means that there is more torque multiplication (acceleration and towing potential) but less speed potential than a 3.90:1 gear. Of course, that's overly simplified because the gear ratios of the transmission and the powerband of the engine matter too.

byb555 - Please don't use that as your signature... it is too large and bulky. Just make 3 links with - seperators if you must.
