 u shouldda ask hoppy b4 u bought it man... one of my friend was thinkin like dat b4, and he went to see hoppy and hoppy said it can be done but it requires the whole rear part, lsd (diff), axle, hub cap, etc etc.. n it's not cheap.. hey prolly the PREZ have an idea to fit lsd to 4 studder gts ????

 i just remember some1 told me before that some of r32/r33 gts25 come with lsd from factory. don't know whether it's true or not, but if it's true, this would be a good upgrade, coz gts25 and gts supposedly have the same rear set-up.
mista prez, if u out there could you pls give us, the non-lsd-er, some idea ???

 i'm pretty sure my 33 gts25 has lsd...
never been able to get just one wheel to spin, and tight slow cornering
sometimes i notice the inside wheel 'jerking' (for want of a better description)  

is there any way you can tell visually?
i could take some pics

 well, crooser, from wat u said, i am quite sure u have a lsd, yeah, lsd does jerk a lil around the cornering, i think its bcoz both wheels need to have equal power transfer from the engine, well, to makesure, jack up ur car, have a look under the diff, if u have 5 bolting points from the axle and NOT six, then its a LSD. thats wat i learned when i found out i cant directly bolt the lsd on my car BUGGER!!......
well, i wat i might wanna do is, make a conversion to 5 studs, so i can have some type M's mags on my gts, hehehehhe, no one can tell i dont have a turbo in mycar,  

cheers~~

 ok... i slid under the car just now and counted 5 bolts where each
axle joins to diff.

shouldnt we be able to tell the options from the vin numbers??

If LSD is a standard addition to a 33 gts25, maybe you could just get
the axles off a wrecked one. With a bit of luck the 32gts and 33gts axles
are the same length?
