Ok, i own a 2002 tacoma and the celicasupra lsd fits in it. Now I know the trutrac works in the MKII so that means it would work in the tacoma as well. What will i need to make this work with using my stock 3.58 gears. I know that you guys need to use a shim or spacer if you do not use stock MKII gears with the stock lsd and with the trutrac as well right?? I shouldnt need carrier bearings since i will not be installing it in a irs? Right?

Given it has a Toyota 7.5" R&P the diff should bolt to the ring gear with no extra parts. Depending on if the Tacome has a 45 or 50 mm ID bearing determines if you need new carrier bearings. The MkII is 45mm and the Trucks the aftermarket diffs are made for are 50mm. You should buy new bearings anyways. The are pretty cheap like 20-30 each from Toyota. HTH

ok this is where i get confused. like i said before, the supra lsd fits the tacoma with out needing diffrent bearings (or atleast i think) but the trutrac in a supra needs the carrier bearings for the 4x4 front to work in the supra. is that because of the lsd unit its self?? so the outer dimension for the carrier bearing is the same but the supra uses a 45mm inner dimension while the 4x4 lsd uses a 50mm. God this is so confusing. one of the tacoma guys told me that i wouldnt need the bearings because it was just because you were irs. guess i just need to buy the unit and order two sets of bearings one in the 45mm and on in 50mm? research sucks!

no, the only bearings you might need are the carrier bearings for a 90 4x4 front diff. thats it. dont waste money on the supra carrier bearings as its a proven fact they dont fit the true trac lsd. the carrier bearings mount on the lsd(truetrac) which is for the front diff of 89+ 4x4 front diffs with 7.5in r&p so thats what you need the carrier bearings for as well.

i just hope that the outer dimension of the 4x4 bearings is the same as my trucks.

i dont know if the outer diameter is the same as your trucks or not. if i did id lift the load off your mind, but i do know they are the same outer diameter as the supra bearings if that will help.

ill have to go dig for tem, but of you go to the dealer, ask for the outer carrier bearings for a 1990 toyota 4-runner 4x4 front diff. ~$90 for the pair if i remember right.

Is there some reason your wanting a LSD in a Taco? You would probly be better off with a lockright or a no slip if you use it off road any at all. If its just a highway go fast short truck then get the LSD. I'm preety sure that the supra LSD fits in it but you need the new bearings. I would get them just to be safe *you can always take them back if you don't need em*

im assuming he is going to put it on the front diff. lots of offroaders do this. much better steering etc.. and it still climbs rocks well.
