it would allow you to use an lsd torsen form a fd rx7 in a repu rear. you need a ring gear spacer and axle spacer also new bolts you will have to grind two notches in the alxe housing for the new bolts to clear like a fd rear end the pics are of the axle spacer first pic and ring gear spacer second pic

here is the info to the first kit that is nla

Are the carrier bearings compatible? What are you doing about pinion depth when the crush sleeves are no longer available? How much shimming of the LSD is going to be required with your "ring gear spacer" ?

Use the carrier bearings from the FD and the crush sleeve can be stretched out and then re-crushed. Been there done that. with the ring gear in the same spot the adjusters won't need to be moved.

Glad to see someone else doing a kit Al!

Nice work Adam! I think you could sell some of these on eBay too to recoup development time.

I just recently installed this kit on my REPU and it's night and day difference. It also helps I put some really sticky tires on the truck as well! Rear grip for days now!
