    I've just had a LSD installed in my Hilux rear end (ke70) and now for some reason it's pulling to the right while driving. Also I was told when I bought the lsd it had just been tightened/shimmed and now it pretty much feels like a locker.. Is this normal?

    Also I might aswell ask this question in the same thread, do these coilovers look like they are base adjustable?

    Thanks heaps, just wanted to make sure that they won't sit too low on the rolla
    Do they seem like a good buy for $350? No leaks, 6 kg springs

    I know this feeling. If you put the open diff back in it would drive straight, with the locker or LSD it pulls one way. Your car or suspension is twisted slightly one way. Or, you have uneven tyres on the rear. Left and right tyres are different sizes or brands. Get adjustable trailing arms for your diff housing, if you havn't allready. You need to make one side a bit longer or shorter and experiment.

    If you had the TRD style LSD for the T series, you would only notice the pull to one side while under power and deceleration ( if its 2 way). But because the HiLux diff has coil springs (and that it is shimmed up tight) you feel it all the time.

    I just had a quick look and I have profile 55 tyres on one side and 50 on the other, I'll swap them around so they are even and see if I get any improvement

    Thanks everyone, that fixed it

    Is it possible that the lsd I had put in had been tightened so much that it now acts like a locker? Should it become a bit less tight after a bit of driving, or does something sound wrong?
