    As for someone selling them as an all in on package, I haven't seen anyone that's put one together yet.
    so i take it they still make all these parts from toyota?

          sorry for the noob question but since we're talking about rear ends and all..
          My 86 never came with a LSD.. and i talked to a shop and they said i have to get some 4.77 gears or something.. Is this right?

          The shop said they'll have to add bearings and everything new in to make the LSD work. I always thought you just buy an LSD and pop it in?

          I have a brand new Cusco 1.5 WAY LSD and initially, i assumed you just open up the car's rear diff and pop it in.. but the shop said i'm going to need new bearings, 4.77 gear or something like that.

          Can anybody clear this up?

            My 86 didn't come with an LSD either. I have a Cusco 1.5 way RS LSD going in with the parts that I've listed above. I'll be keeping my stock 4.3 ring and pinion. I'm curious, what shop told you this? There are guys on this board (rix86) that can do the install for an awesome price, or if you'd like to use a drivetrain specialty shop, then there are a few that could help out: Randy's Ring & Pinion in Everett, Northwest Differential in Kirkland, Bellevue Transmission & Differential, etc. I'm sure there are a few more that others can recommend.

              You have non-LSD axles. If you want to use the factory LSD, you need to shorten them 5-8mm (more info here: http://www.dreamsofdrifting.com/ae86/axles/index.htm).

              You can also go the aftermarket route like with your Cusco LSD and not have to shorten your axles.

              About the ring and pinion/bearings, I get the same part number when I do a search for the factory part, so I don't think they are any different. Stock R&P is 43:10 (4.3) for GTS rear.

                All you need is new carrier barrings.. and a new seal.. cuase open diff doesnt come with one.. but besides those two parts.. pop it in.. also make sure you get lsd or have lsd axles cuase the non lsd axles wont pop it
