I have an 03' WRX that I've been sliding for about 2 years now. I finally blew the stock rear diff a few months back right after I put a new clutch in and changed the center diff. Decided to go RWD since I was already sliding the car and absolutely love the car.

Long story and headache short I finished the conversion today, after driving about 3 miles or so I blew the rear diff didn't even get to have fun with it yet.

I need opinions on LSD's what do you prefer and to go 2 way 1.5 and why?

So far I've been looking at OSGiken, Kaaz, and Cusco. Any other brands I should think about?

I have not had time to get some pics of the finished product as far as the custom driveshaft, axles, and mounting plates and what not. I will get them tomorrow for ya.

From what I've read, you're going to want to swap out the rear axles too. I've read that a lot of people are just swapping in STI rear ends with pretty good luck.


Sounds like a rad project man. Can't wait to see pics.

I love my 1.5 way KAAZ. If you're going to street your car at all - that would get my vote for sure.
I'm way stoked to see this car be a drifter!
:slayer:

It's primarily done, I have everything in. The R200, custom drive shaft and welded center diff. but when I started driving around I was hearing a horrid sound it was like tire rub but with metal mixed in, and at the time I was only a 1 tire fire so I assumed that I blew out the diff.

But, After jacking it up today one of the inner CV joints came apart. and then shortly after when I was moving the car to put it in a better location the other side fell apart.

So now I have to have the axles redone they are to short.

Here are a few pic's of the axles, the drive shaft, and the front frame for the differential (Some are horrid quality;(). I completely forgot to take pic's of the diff but I can get those later.
