    LSD for 1st gen q's

    I've got two conquest IRS's and thought about swapping the LSD from the quest into the 86 ram50's rear.

    Can this be done?

    Thanks E

    I think the gears will swap over but the starion lsd carrier isnt quite wide enough to fit the truck case. I see the starion guys use the 3.9 gears from the trucks.

    The starion lsd will only fit in the front dif of 4x4s. You need a rear dif out of a 4banger mighty max or montero.

    The starquest lsd will not fit the rear of our trucks, but will fit the front diff of a 4wd truck. Try to get one from a 1st gen montero - 91 or older. You may also be able to use one from a montero sport - the axle will have disc brakes and leaf spring perches. Try the starquest forums and see if you can trade the starquest lsd for a montero lsd - thats how I got one for Geronimo, although I traded it on the old ram50 forum. 2nd gen monteros have the 9" rear diff with lsd and are nearly indestructable - also supposed to be a better copy of a ford 9", but I can't say that for sure. They are 4.63 gears, but there are 3.909 gears out there if you look hard for them.

    Pennyman! Did u say leafspring perches? Would the whole axle swap?
    I thought that the later montero's had the Dana-44's... Hhmmm.
    I'm kinda stuck right now, unless I find one this weekend.. I'm having shoulder surgery Tuesday morning
    What about the Raider's? Too small, Too big?

    Thanks E

    Raiders are monteros 1st gen - direct swap. So should the montero sport be a direct swap, the whole axle should be a bolt up, except the drive shaft may need modified to work on the truck.

    I've got an LSD out of a truck I got from another member here that I never used. I ended up moving my project forward faster than I figured and narrowed a Mopar 8.75 for mine.
