Default GS400 TRD LSD is there anyone still selling them

Hello everyone I am trying to get a TRD LSD? I have been searching for an LSD but all I have found so far is the Kaaz 2 way unit and I don't want to go that hardcore. I have an IS300 with the V160 so I need the lower gears of the GS400.

Thanks,

Justin

If the above vendors can't find one for you, you could try RHDJapan. Those guys have access to a lot of parts. Shipping would probably be a killer since it'd come from Japan. I also think you'd need a GS400 differential since the LSD only replaces the open unit, but not the ring gear.

...or you could also search for one on Yahoo Auctions Japan and have it sent to you from one of the companies that do that type of business.

Would a Supra 3.73 limited slip diff suit your purpose?

Isn't this suitable for GS430?

Thanks for the responses guys. I will look into those places. I do'nt want to go 3.73 only because I have an IS300 and stock my car has that gearing. I am looking to go to the 3.26 to get the gear ratios back to 6speed turbo surpa specs. Thanks for the tip on RHD, that price works out to be really good. I am going to checke Elmhurst and Sewell as well though. I will post up the info once I find out.

Ok I just checked and it seems they have the TRD LSD and with the current exchange rate it is $824.00 plus $69.00 for shipping. Which to me seems like a good deal. I really did not want go with a Kaaz unit as the 2 ways they sell i hear are loud and make every day driving a a pain. I just need to make sure it is compatible first because it looks like they have the Aristo 4.0 which would be our GS400 but the production dates seem off.

On a seperate note has any one dealt with RHD before?

I am ordering a few parts from them, so I can report in a few weeks how they are. However, a couple of my friends have done business in the past with them for parts, and they were happy with the service.
