    Limited Slip Diff

    How could I tell if my 2wd Saff's LSD is knackered?

    Also, I read recently that they shouldn't do the brake test on the rollers at MOT time as it locks one wheel and spins the other.

    Thoughts?

    Does it whine when accelerating / decelerating ? If so then the bearings in the diff casing may be worn, your looking at 150 to have new bearings fitted (inc labour).

    If your going to take the diff out, why not buy a Quaife ATB diff, a 2wd has a 7.5" rear diff, you'll need new flanges also, 685 +VAT for all the bits, around 150 to get it fitted with new bearings.

    I span my wheels on my gravel drive today and it left two marks, but last time I wheelspan on the road it only left one long one.
