LSD Upgrade for 16V + W124!

Tired of your worn out LSD clutches costing you traction off the line and around corners? Then this is the upgrade for you!

I've developed a spring block that installs in the 185mm diffs found in the 16V, 2.6 and many W124s. It greatly increases the amount of lock the diff produces.

Check out the ebay auction for more info:

A number of people have expressed interest in a kit for the 210mm diffs. I'm willing to do that, but I don't have access to one at the moment. If you know of someone that has one laying around, let me know.

Absolutely. You will be very pleased with the amount of lock you get, even with very worn clutches. This kit also works in non-LSD diffs and gives you some locking, though not as much as in an LSD unit.

The block is purposely made with a softer steel than the gears. So, all the wear will occur to the spring block, not the gears. Also, keep in mind that these gears are stationary when both wheels are turning at the same speed. They only turn when you are going around a corner, and even then they turn at a slow speed. It will be a long time before there is any appreciable wear on the spring block.

The spring blocks have been relisted. I expect them to sell out this time, so grab one while they're available!

This is very intriguing for a non-LSD! Couple of questions....

I thought you need clutches to make this work. How does it work without them?

How much lock would you get compared to a factory unmodified LSD?..90%, 50%?

I assume this would work on any w123 3.69, 3.46, 3.07, and 2.88 ratio non-LSDs.

Hi there. Do you have/can you make more of these spring blocks? Need them for my 2.5-16v.
Thanks

123s

Can they work in a W123? I have a 300D that I'd like to make an LSD.

Gotta make the 123 a LSD first, then you can add the spring block to increase lockup if desired. Converting the normal 3.07 W123 diff to limited-slip is straightforward, you just use the 190E-16 LSD internals and bolt it together. For 2.88 gears you get a 1985 300D diff, and bolt in the LSD from a 1995 E300 with ASD. Same idea, just different ratios involved. You'll still need to refresh the clutch packs along the way... plan on at least $750 for the project.

I don't think the spring blocks are available anymore, though... pretty sure he sold out the batch which was created. Dunno if he'll make any more, either.

Yeah that would be a nice upgrade if they were still around. If they would fit my 126, I'd go for one as well.
