So their "conversion kit" is basically a short-lifespan questionable LSD, and really not at all related to their actual clutch-type diff?

The blocks are mounted on a disk that rides on the side gears. I wouldn't be too worried about it destroying your diff. Probably half as good as a truetrac for less than half the money.

The company seems legit and serious about what they are selling, I wouldn't worry about the quality.
If it would be really rubbish they for sure wouldn't sell it.

Exactly what Harlard says, they are several reviews on youtube about this diff used in several cars.
None of them bad.


Looks like John just acting like a c*nt...

John may be a c*nt but he has a lot of experience with real-world applications and this type of thing is not new. What he is saying is what I would expect the outcome to be from such a devise. They will work for a bit but they will wear out much faster than a typical clutch type diff. In the mean time, all the iron wearing in your case will **** your bearings and R&P.

This. No arguing this end result either based on how they work. Get a lock-right, $220 on a few sites with a quick google search.

Lock right is ratchet locker. They are dangerous and noisy.
Unreliable and also wearing parts...

Dana 30 spicer stuff is really rare!
I have a Dana spicer diff at home but only diffcrosses and plates set you back about 400 euro's already.

Im trying to have the mentioned company Racing Diffs to get a set of those plates made.

About John being or nog being a c*nt he is acting like one that's what I'm saying.
There is also people with good experience with those diffs as you can read.

I think if you understand what you are buying and how it's working you know what you might expect. Not miracles anyway.

If you are from the Netherlands there's a 4x4 shop in Helmond that is a retailer for Rugged Ridge and Omix-Ada Jeep. They may also have access to ordering from Quadratec. Quadratec sells Powertrax LSD units in the us for around $375.

The powertrax mentioned above is a helical LSD, not a ratchet locker.
Might be a decent choice at $400, though it would be good to know if it was a high preload like the “588” true tracks.

That’s kind of a naively optimistic stance to take on any product.

Look at the website, look at the Fb page, look at the Youtube channel.
Do you think they'd sell a product that would be completely rubbish?

It will bring them down if they do... they have a great name in diff products!

Be that as it may, never underestimate someone’s interest in taking your money.

The similarly designed phantom grip in my FWD Toyota made a big difference and was worth it.
