Make sure if you get an OBX you find an installer who has done several of them and knows what he's doing. Even though some feel that OBX has improved their quality they are still being shipped with defects. According to my installer the OBX is a Chinese made Quaife knock-off. He has installed about 20 of them and each time he's had to dissassemble them and make corrections and in some cases do machine work. So he charges more to install them. The Quaifes he just installs without taking them apart.

I understand the price difference is very tempting, but among other reasons I don't recommend the OBX is the fact they stole the design and because they are made in China, copyright protection cannot be enforced.

Why don't you just become a distributor already?

I have heard good things about the OBX LSD. There has been several discussions on here about it, just do a little search.

how long does it take for one of those to be installed?
my $150 install charge is based on 6 hours time.

While it normally takes about 4-5 hours to do the work, the bearings have to be pressed on and the press is about 30 miles away. Someday (spring?) He's gonna give me the press and I'll give him a Radial arm saw in exchange.

Also 88-91's need clearancing for the bolt heads.

I've never opened a OBX, my wrench looked like it was gonna strip the bolt head, or worse break it.

for some reason i thought you charged more? maybe it was from other sites like this one and you had a shiping fee?

I hear some good and some not good. I don't understand why I read so many posts on this forum saying "no problems at all" when it's so easy to find them with a little research. It's like so many here just want to desparately believe when clearly the OBX is inferior.

Here's a post from 3 weeks ago by Jim Truett on another forum.

Hopefully, at least OBX may be abe to put some price pressure on Quaife to bring down their prices - if they can.
