PostSubject: which is better the 1.5 or 2.0 LSD for DD?   Tue Mar 09, 2010 5:35 am

hey guys i've been looking for a LSD for my 1990 toyota celica GT. I've done some researches and not a lot of companies manufacture LSD for these year celicas except two or three of them. there's a particular one i think it's pretty good. the TRD LSD since it's made by Toyota itself. for about 1400-1600 it's not too shabby but my real question is which LSD would you guys recommend for a daily driver. a 1.5 LSD or 2.0 LSD? i need tractions on ground when wet, or so on... by the way this car is completely stock and will never see modification either.


thanks!

Your best option will be a 1.5 LSD.
Car charcteristics will change massivly when using a 2 way LSD. The handling, when on the brakes, will be much harder to control. This offcourse only at high speeds.
If you're not a "racer", then put your money in some suspensionupgrades, and skip the LSD.
I wouldn't spent so much money on an LSD though.

Goodluck!

I'd go for the 1.5 LSD, which engine do you have? Have you read the LSD articles in the handling section?

Basically some LSD's for MR2's, gen 7 Celica,s, Corolla Runx and more can be used for the S53/4 trans in our Celicas so there's plenty of choice, just need to swap the bearings over.

Celica_XR9145, I have the 1990 Celica GT 2.2L motor. 3SFE probably. Actually I haven't gotten to the handling section of the forum yet.. but I'll make sure to drop by there and read. I don't think i'll be spending money for LSDs at the dealers..

You might be surprised, last time i heard, TRD LSD's were fairly cheap but would be one of the last things i'd do. A set of TEIN coilovers would be my first choice.

Also, some gen 6 Celicas (S54 trans) have factory LSD's and can replace the standard S53 in your celica, fairly rare but they are about, could be a cheaper option.
