The reason for not just treating the ends of the spring with friction material is heat capacity and also the fact that there is not as much contact area with it(back to the heat thing too). It could also do with possibly screwing up the tempering of the spring when the material is baked on(don't know how hot or how long that takes).

My thought on this may be to weld the spring to a washer then treating the washer ends with friction material, this would eliminate the chance of the spring cocking.

^^possibly, but you'd have to be VERY careful welding it so as not to screw up the heat treatment of the spring!

I think that is you line stuff up with an actual pin, clamp it all down and just alternate a bunch of tig spotwelds all would be good.

can't believe this thread still grows. :)

No material nedes to be removed to fit the 7.5 ranger spring in a neon diff. Use a rubber mallet to insert, after removing the diff pin of course.

Buy a spare transmission and do it on there.

It is very difficult to take the differential out of the transmission while the transmission still in the car.

Re: 8.8 ford lsd- possible to copy for our use?

Well, i wrote out a whole step by step process of getting to the diff in the car (not that i recommend it at all) and somehow it is not here? I posted it like 5 days ago....

Oh well, tough shit because i dont feel like re-writing all that.

Re: 8.8 ford lsd- possible to copy for our use?

I'm curious about this as I will be doing it soon to my 1st gen neon trans. Being not easily swayed as I am by the conversation/baby fight that went on on neons.org about the idea, it looks to be as solidly supported as it is here. Like an accepted idea that works.

Is that still the case or have there been tons of epic failures like the "gurus" at the .org would have everyone believe would happen? One guy who admittedly abused the crap out of his trans had a failure and suddenly the thread was locked with the excuse that it was turning into "BS".

Just curious if this is still common practice. I would gladly write up a pic howto when I do mine if it would help.

Block type "LSD" used in 6000 miles, you'd be the judge.








OBX LSD is a much better option.

Re: 8.8 ford lsd- possible to copy for our use?

I did know that that type wears itself to dust. I can think of a few ways to help that, but that's a different story, sort of.

I was more curious if any of these S springs killed transes left and right or if it's a freak thing.

For example, the guy from the .org said that he didn't have the diff pin tabs on, and he didn't install the spring himself either(so who knows how it was done?), and then he beat the crap out of it and it exploded. So, IMO he isn't the poster boy of why not to do it, but it was enough for the ones who mattered to kill the thread.
