LSD Oil - urgent

Postby Russ Kellermann » 07 Mar 2011 11:10

Hizit lads,

Where can i get Limited slip diff oil from , and possibly a friction modifier too. Agents quoted me R203 per Lt @ 5.0 Lt = R1000 odd bucks - after vomiting in my mouth a little i decided to ask you boys for alternatives..... I'd love to have this info within 24 hours.

thanks

Ps: I heard of Castrol LSX doing wonders for the Lsd but where can i get this ? Other brands also welcomed though.

Russ, In Brackenfell I would go to 'Goeie Hoop Onderdele' - they have everything!

Not so sure where to go in the southern suburbs though....

I have used Castrol LSX with great success in my old Safari :thumbup:

Hi Russ

Suburban Spares in Ottery used to have it, I have also seen it at Tonnesons in Claremont. I think its fairly commonly stocked by most of the spares shops so I`m sure if you make a few phone calls you`ll come right.

SRXy`s LSD runs with Castrol LSX.....it had been running with normal diff oil for quite a while and was basically dead (ie open diff!!), but after washing everything out with paraffin a few times, and re-filling with LSX, the LSX has really brought it back to life!

Thanks guys.

Ross, This is exactly what has happened to mine. Nissan put normal oil in my rear diff and it is obviously not operating the way it should. I am so furious with them. However, Nissan are useless and crying over spilt milk is a waste here, unless the diff was damaged, then i would go mental! I plan on purchasing the LSX and running the vehicle for about 100 km, then drain again and fill again, however, with the agents quoting me over R1000 i cannot do this, i need a solution in the form of the cheaper LSX.

I will call around first thing tomorrow for this..... hold thumbs guys!

Will do, gonna ring him first thing.

Why is it then that Nissan LSD oil, and , SOS Cape town oil suggestion of (Gear oil GL5 75w 140 Full Synth) , is literally 5 times the price, surely there's a reason?
