    I have the TRD sport with the mech LSD. Is it off road worthy? And is LSD better than open diff or just the same?

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    It's better then open diff.


    It's not anything compared to a selectable locker though..but it's still better then open.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    With momentum is will do ok "as will open" but if you slow down or try climbing steep hills slow it's not going to help much but it is better then open/open

    lsd is better than open diff and is kinda in the middle of being off road to street applications.

    open diffs will allow one wheel to spin freely while the other is engaged. In an offroad applications, open diffs can get you stuck if both rear wheels are not on the ground.

    LSD limited slip diff. is just that, it limits the slip of a wheel not being in traction. On the street this can be kind of jarred when making a tight corner. You can sometimes feel clunking or one wheel slightly locking up.

    Locking diffs allows the user to lock up the differential making both wheels spins.

    having LSD is a plus over an open diff and should come in good use on an off road application, just not too extreme.

    Locker would be best.
