E30 LSD....any uses for an 02?

I did a search....nothing yet.

Are the internals of an E30 LSD usable in the 02 world? Or will that require heavy machining and fabrication?

I have heard that the ring and pinion from a small case diff found in late e30 318s can be used. Great source for 4.10, 4.22 and 4.44 R&Ps but I don't know if the LSD units can be used.

The big case diffs from the early 318i's all 325i's and most other E30s do not have anything for us.

Small case E30 diff's can be put into an E21 housing which can be put into a 2002! But you will need to machine some parts to make the center fit into the E21 housing. I have seen one on AUS ebay. Just the center sold for about 600. I was thinking about looking into it but after you find a diff then rebuild/machine it I think you'd be better off just finding an E21 LSD.
