Two questions, 1) Will a mkIII supra LSD bolt into an x7, and 2) will an x7 open diff bolt into an x8?

No, and No.........

 

The X7 is a 7.5" unit, same as the MA60 MkII Supra.

 

X8 is an 8" unit, the same as a MkIII Supra.

Internally speaking.........

LSD- choice for dailying, but I've heard people say they can skip

Welded-choice for slides, but hard on dailying.

 

What do you guys think, weld up my stock, or spend the time / money to get an lsd?

DO MORE RESEARCH... instead of waiting for an answer to fall out of the sky... figure out how a differential work then figure out the characteristics of your options and then.... make an educated decision based on what you want its really not rocket science

The search feature on Google, and Yahaoo are marvelous.

Just looking through TRD, Cusco, ATS, etc. sites will show what interchanges.

 

But your fucking welcome anyway.......... :)

Weld it !

Make sure you do it in the car, so that you heat soak the gears and bearings so that they soften.

Weld splatter works wonders in gear oil.

 

Better yet, buy 10 feet of 1/2" nylon rope, and wind it around your spider gears.

It's as good as a viscous LSD.

 

I've had a typicial Monday, and am in my old man bitch mode.

Man up and weld it.

 

Dailying a welded diff is not hard in any way. It only poses problems if you drive like a complete knob.

 

Side effects such as chatter around corners and poor turning radius at low speed...is a small price to pay for the large amount of awesome.

should be noted that agressive 1.5's and 2 ways can have the same side effects.

No, it's the fucking honda-tards.......

or were you being sarcastic?

Yes......

Take it out, pull the bearings and gear off it.

You do not want to get them hot, or they will anneal, and become soft.

You need to put a lot of weld material on the spider gears, or they will crack the welds, and roll over it, gernading the diff.

Seen it too many times.

Thats a diff off a solid axle, not a Cressida, so I'm assuming this is some sarcasm. Funny shit though, the fuck welded the ring and pinion, BHAHAHA!
