well after about 5 trannys time to improve! so here is what i did to my obx lsd to hopefully make it last longer and maybe help some on here rebuild one :D

1-Dissemble the LSD 9 bolts holding the top, and remove the guts! try and keep it organized but it only goes back one way if you think about it logically

here is the stock lower and upper case, its in pretty rough shape from china



2- bust out your dremell with a 60 grit sanding wheel and smooth out the edges and potential pieces that may break off and float around in the tranny


* I smoothed the insides and the chamfers a bit and cleaned the cases from dust

3- The lower axle or "sun" gear is the taller one

put it into the lower case chamfored side DOWN, just think the axle has to slide in so it makes it easier :D

4-next come the 5 outer or "planetary" gears, if you mixed them up dont worry 5 are cut one direction and 5 the opposite, only the correct 5 will fit


5-Lower in the center gear that retains the washers


6- The two washer retaining gears were identical upper and lower on this LSD, install the lower one with the flat side DOWN and the notches side UP so they can retain the washers in the center



7- the washer order I went with )()()(


8-center them up using whatever you have around that the same diamater, my 1/2 extension worked


9-put on the upper washer retaining gear on above the washers with the notch DOWN and the flat side UP, also add the remaining outer planetary gears


10-the other axle gear (shorter one) chamfored side UP and notched DOWN

I would have checked the runout before doing all this work.

Esp. since opening the OBX voided any warranty you had, whatever little it was.
