85' GSL-SE rear diff lsd is worn out.

Hey all,

The LSD in the differential of my 85 is worn out after 304K miles, is there any rebuild kit available? or is there an after market diff that can be bolted in? i haven't been able to find anything. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you!

Diff Mount, LSD, Torsen, Rear Oils

If you wish to refresh it with new clutch discs go down to " 81-88 Limited Slip Differential Rebuild Clutch Parts: ". I did that in my Tii diff using the oversized clutch discs and thrust washers with good results. They also have Kaaz diffs listed if you wish to go that route.

Also there are certain years of Miata diffs that bolt right in.
