Hi guys, firstly happy new year to you all. So here's the question, how easy is it to dreate a Jag LSD? I have a nice tight leak free example to replace my existing leaky worn out example and before I strip and replace the rear end I thought about derating the new one a bit. Has anyone found a good DIY guide on the internet? cheers, Simon

Personally I run mine as is but some people have had them derated. I believe there is someone who has done it before themselves but not sure how.

A chap called Russel Ram posts on here occasionally. He has done loads and does a rebuild and de-rate service.

Thanks Craig, I'm hoping Russ might pick up on this and tell us the options. Don't really want to send it off if I can do it myself and as it's on the bench at the moment it would be a good time to do it. I am also going to have my drive shafts and wishbones shortened even more to allow the wheels to tuck in further under the arches so it's a good time to do it all at the same time.

I don't think Russell lets on how to de-rate a diff but I think I remember kdavies3 working out how to do it might be worth dropping him a PM.

De-rating the diff is not too difficult, just re-ordering clutch and spring plates, it is knowing how to get the crownwheel assembly in and out of the case that is the trick. Which I don't know!

You need specialist tools to prise apart the diff casing.
Here is a crownwheel removal and instal kit:-
