Default LSD for a 94

Is a limited slip available for my car? Since I need a new one this could be an option.

intense will convert yours to a LSD if you send them your dif, also, phantom grip sells a LSD conversion for our cars too.

The intense and phantom units are basically the same unit.

Both are not true limited slips.

Go look up a Eaton limited slip. Then look at what the phantom and intense unit do.

Yes Domestic performance sells the limited slip separate but we have had our site hammered a lot so we are running stagnant right now.

Do some research and you will find that stuffing the gears with the spacer (intense) or using springs to push the gears against the spacers (phantom) are both not true limited slips. Yes fast cars use the intense unit and some can do quite well without any of them.. For now. BUT a true limited slip uses not only clutch material but balanced springs (unlike companies who crams in the hardest springs they can to copy the effect of intense).

The best way to look at this (in my opinion) is the phantom and intense units use steel-to-steel friction systems. If your transmission were made this way it would overheat and fall apart. Your transmission uses actual clutches and clutch material.. A “true” limited slip also uses clutch material and is properly balanced.


That said they all "work” in there own way and usually the cheaper price of a phantom gets people in the door.
