Body Damage is Cool
When I called Eaton back in March they still had the parts, but yes the "Spring and Clutch Rebuild Kit" for the Sportage was no longer in production. I asked if they could check to see if the parts were used in any other "Kits" and let me know so I could order that rebuild kit instead of using the old Sportage P/N. I also asked for pricing and they said only "Distributors" can get pricing. I have not heard from them since and have left a couple of messages.

Dave,

How well did it work? Any info on that LSD would be great. Maybe I can find one locally that I can pull and drop into the front end.

Thanks.

I'm the one who put the Miata Torsen into the front of my Sportage back in '04. It works great but I don't even notice it. The truck just goes where I point it with no jerking, no clunking, and no fuss. Much better in the ice and snow and mud than a regular LSD. For 4wd, it was an even bigger improvement than when I changed the rear open diff. to an LSD.

Thanks for the info on the Miata diff. I spent several hours searching the forum about this fit. I'm going with a 89 RX-7 non-turbo lsd in the front. Got it for $50. I read on some Miata forums that it is a direct swap. Not as good as your Torsen, but a lot cheaper.
Thanks for your input.

Need a Spot
I seem to remember several years ago that someone had installed a miata torsen type diff carrier on the rear of a 95 kia sportage (4wh dr of course). All that was necessary was to install my ring gear on the carrier and re-install and adjust.anyone remember this or can help me????
