    Open to LSD Swap

    Hey guys just to start off i know there are several posts similar to this out there, Iíve done a fair share of web surfing to avoid starting a new one but I havenít found one that has answered my question exactly. Ok soooo, I have an open 3.25 diff that i want to convert into an LSD. My understanding is (and please correct me if Iím wrong) I can buy a LS carrier and just swap the ring gear from the open and put it on a LS Clutch Carrier. I will NOT be touching the pinion, just swapping the ring gear from the open to the LS Carrier pack. I consider myself to be a pretty competent mechanic but I havenít dabbled much with Diffs. So can I make the swap or is there much more involved? I canít find a 3.25lsd for a reasonable price and I have someone that is willing to sell me a Carrier at a good price. Remember Iím keeping the gearset the same (pinion and ring gear) just swapping the open case to a LS clutch carrier case. Thanks and try not to judge me too hard! ;D

    As long as the carrier is from a 3.15+, yes. You'll want to check the mesh, just to be sure.
    Use your shims to start, and be sure to keep them where they came from.
