I was reading about Auto-Lsd in Tacomas and I was wondering if Toyota even offeres a mechanical limited slip differential anymore.

ALSD works pretty good offroad and ok in the street. Also a mechanical LSD is expensive. The Sport package used to me quite a bit more expensive than the offroad when it had a mechanical LSD and now it is 300 cheaper than the OR without it.

All of the hardware for A-LSD already existed once they had the STAR system standard on all of the trucks. It was basically a no-cost option to give everyone A-LSD.

He was saying the mechanical LSD cost more than the ALSD because of the reasons you stated.

Of course a mechanical LSD worked in 4lo whereas the auto LSD only works in 2hi & 4hi.

people dont know how to use it. Hino still makes mechanical LSD but its only for trucks outside US. Its the way all things end up. If it is too good then it gets discontinued

Yes, and I was adding to his already correct explanation.

A mehc. LSD isnt going to add that much to the cost of a vehicle. The assembly is about 100 bucks (manufacture cost for the bare part), and it can be assembled as the gears are being installed with very littel added time.

Why was the Sport model quite a bit more than the OR when now the Sport is $300 less?

Retail price on a mech LS diff is abou t$300.00. The actual cost to a manufacture is much less. If your talking about the MSRP, then that varies depending on options, and dealer add ons. I really dont think the lack of an LS Diff reduces the cost 300 bucks.

IDK. I remember seeing the Sport cost about $700ish more than the OR back in like 07.

So that would mean the LS Diff cost 1000 bucks. I dont think so. The problem lies in, the individual dealer ships print the "MSRP" on each vehicle. The same vehicle at any dealership can vary in price to some degree. Some TRD modles have a single disk stereo, 6 disk, JBL, tow package, while others might be outfitted differently. Unless you can see the same options line by line, on the 2 different vehicles, its a guessing game.

This was online pricing and they were built the same because I built them. When I actually built my 2010 truck online before purchase in 09 I noticed the OR was cheaper. I know what you are saying though.

Oh and model.
