sup guys, i have a 5spd 87 supra with a non turbo motor, but i read about how that turbo motors have non lsd rear end, but i took a look at my rear axle, it said to use LSD oil only, so does that means that i do have LSD or it just uses the same oil, also what oil can i use for it? and where can i get it.

If you check your Vin Code or Engine Code the book specifies what numbers/ letters are LSD diff. But, I'm sure you have a LSD the rear cover wouldn't say it otherwise. If you have LSD just use gear oil 80-90W with this stuff called Posi Trax or a LSD additive that helps with the LSD rear. So, just look it up I got the same Diff it's prob a 3.90 LSD rear which is good. 87 N/A!

n/a's have sport packages with the lsd's but all n/a's have 4.30 gearing. if its a sport is has a 4.30 lsd. use 75w90 -80w90 gear oil and add a lsd friction modifier additive. toyota sells the the lsd additive for like 10 bux i believe.

fyi all turbo's come with lsd's. pre89 have a 3.91 and 89+ have 3.73 gearing.
