Default 1.8 3.636 Diff Swap "Kit"

Switching over to a solid axle....so I am going to sell the current rear end.

1.8 Driveshaft
1.8 One-Piece Halfshafts
1.8 Diff Assembly (has 3.636 gears cryo-treated and RX7 Clutch-Type LSD)

Only have 800 miles on this.

Bryceness can vouch for this set-up. He helped me install it.

$1000 for this set-up.

any interest in just selling the diff assembly? I already have the halfshalfs and a driveshaft.

If I could find someone to buy the driveshaft and halfshafts I would. Otherwise, I think it is more marketable as a "kit".

Give me an idea of a price you would give me for just the diff assembly.

BTW,

The diff assembly has BRAND NEW Pinion Bearings, Carrier Bearings, and all new seals. All the Clutches in the Diff are hardly worn and the 3.6 gears were brand new when I got them and I sent them off to get cryo-treated and shot peened.

remind me please, what is the main difference between the clutch-type and a torsen?

There are clutch plates inside the differential, that will wear out...after quite a while. The torsen uses gears, so it will not wear out.

I chose to put a clutch-type in because I like to get good off the line traction and from what I researched, a clutch-type would be better for that.

Clutch type has more lockup like mike said and can hold more HP reliably.
