Chance for a MFactory Rear LSD for Golf R/A3/TT

I got it back into the shop to make the adjustment. The noise and vibration from the rear are gone and it drives smooth around town, but now I have a vibration through the steering wheel above 70mph. Guessing that's a separate issue, but still...it's frustrating.

Damn. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the new vibration is something simple like a lost wheel weight.

I did get this installed in my Audi. The LSD has helped with allowing the end to swing into a turn. The rear end feels like it snaps into place right at the end of the turn. I am a fan of this upgrade.

Toss in a Van Der Veer Engineering Haldex Controller and the car can get through the turns and twisties very well. I am looking forward to track time and canyon carving time very soon.

I am a few weeks in a no issues with the LSD, noise, vibrations so I feel fortunate. I hope you get your NVHs figured out TimS.

My issues were down to the installation, and the current vibration seems to be unrelated (it's through the steering wheel) - I'm happy with the rear LSD so far.

Now that I've been able to push it a little bit, the car does seem to track better in cornering, especially accelerating out of a turn. I'm still not sure I'd have spent the money on it if I didn't already need a new diff, but I'm happy with it being in the car.
