I have a limited slip out of a 92 mustang lined up.. I just need to get a clutch rebuild kit for it ($40) and get it installed.

couldn't hurt.. thats the price my friend quoted me, but he has good connections on parts, maybe $40 isn't what most folks would pay for it.

Then again, a 2-3 year old rear shouldn't NEED a clutch rebuild.

Remember those old Subaru commercials, that go "It transfers power from the wheel that slips to the wheel that grips?" Well a regular "open" differential transfers all the power to the wheel that slips. The "Limited Slip" is exactly that; it will allow one wheel to slip for a moment, then it will basically lock up and turn both wheels at the same rate. Great for drag racing and off-roading both.
