    3 = LSD

    If it was:
    2 = non-lsd

    The tip to put a jack on the frame rails and not the sub frame seems like a no brainer, but you'd be surprised... The bolts are m12x1.25 i believe, so if you are planning to chase the threads get one of those.

    YES!!! Very helpful,indeed. I'll be doing a swap soon.Just got a 4.10 LSD.This a sticky/FAQ,right?

    BTW,the stock oil pan drain plug(On my 5M) is the SAME size and threads as the diff drain and fill plugs. MUCH better hex to get a socket on and not strip out the heads of the plugs. It is a weird size. M18X 1.25...maybe.
    Make your own magnetic drain plug by Shoe-Gooing a small magnet on the inside or the outside of the plugs. Why not do both?Tranny,too.
    JB Weld would be more secure. I am the magnet man!
    When you drain out the gear oil,the magnet WILL be fuzzy with metal particles.

    Toyota puts magnets inside the tranny pan from the factory.So does G.M.
    You can find a large round magnet inside the magnatron of a microwave oven like the ones that G.M. uses.
    Computer hard drives have strong neodimium ones that are desirable.
    I'm draining my diff,now.


    I'll go with Mobil 1 and FORD friction modifier for the lubricant.
    Not Astroglide,as some one made a joke about.
    Besides, it's water based and won't mix with oil,anyway.

    I didn't get the Mobil 1. I got Lucas and it already has the friction modifier
    in the formula! Nice.
    I'll be 6 oz. short to fill the diff. DINO oil will be compatable.
    I'll walk up to MY NUH KEE and get a 1/2 pint.
    I'll paint it tomorrow. Probable blue. NO! White!
    I have 2 magnetic drain/fill plugs ready to go.
    Weird size gaskets: 18mm/11/16".

    The replacement 4.10 LSD is MUCH quieter.
    I did it SOLO and I am old.
    "Cheap-O " H.F. jack won't go up quite far enough.
    Magnet glued to the fill and drain plugs.
    I added Ford friction modifier to the Kendall gear oil B-4 the install.
    I had normal GL-5 oil before and around corners,it would load and unload the plates inside and the entire car would "Bam Bam".
    The original differential(Type L) was non LSD.
    This white one is it's 3rd one! Also,it's 3rd engine from an '85 car.

    Thanks to Dave Andrew,R.I.P. 2016.
