What a badass thread! I've learned more in this thread on diffs than in any other Ive found doing a google search.

Laila!

The suretrac is a TBD so I woudn't consider it a 1/1.5 or 2 at all IMO. But yest this is a differential intended for pavement type racing if in the rear end.

Which models used the OE clutch LSD? I'm thinking 80's models, correct, not the new-age cars?

So further guessing they won't fit the new-age cars, either?

Incorrect, any R160 Diff will fit in any other R160 housing. Just make sure that your gear ratio stays the same.

This is incredibly informative. I have two LSDs in my RA drivetrain that were not original and I have not been able to identify them. This is exactly what I needed.

Oh sweet mother of- WHERE IS THE NEAREST JUNKYARD?!

Not having ever handled the CLSD R160 diffs, can a few extra clutch discs be added to increase the lock up like on other factory diffs?
