Sonic/Cruze Team MFactory Limited Slip Differential

This is an aftermarket limited slip differential (LSD) for your M32 6 speed Chevy Sonic or Chevy Cruze. Allows for traction at all times by providing the most power to the wheel with more grip. Unlike plate differentials (1,1.5,2-way) helical LSDs can supply different spin rates to each axle, like when cornering. The smooth consistent  distribution of power to the wheels with the MFactory Helical LSD puts the power-to-the-ground and maximizes your vehicle's traction. A must for any car be it street, strip, or track.

What exactly does an LSD do you ask? Without an LSD your car is actually 1 wheel drive, in that it can't supply torque to both wheels at the same time and will only supply torque to the wheel with less grip, which is what the shortfall is to an open differential (what most vehicles have).

An LSD only lets the wheels spin at different speeds by a limited amount (typically this is a percentage difference) which is when the differential locks and both wheels get power. This is not how locked differentials work such as in off road trucks which supply equal torque and rotational speed to both rear wheels at the same time, which can cause issues with handling.

Add On: The stock bearings are very hard to remove without damaging them to reuse with the new diff, so we add an option to add new replacements instead.

  • Made from imported Japanese SAE 4320 & SAE 9310 Steel
  • Forged, Double Tempered and Super Sub-Zero treated for unsurpassed toughness
  • Advanced Shot Peening technology increases surface hardness
  • Designed to withstand the extreme shock loads of competition-level Drag Racing
  • Advanced gear geometry designed using industry-leading software puts more power to the ground
  • Only the highest quality Brighton-Best Hardware is used
  • Maintenance-free Gears eliminates the need for special fluids & rebuilds associated with plate-type LSDs
  • Lock-free operation ensures no adverse affect to steering response
Typical install time should be under 3 hours by a competent mechanic. Differential bearings are recommended to be changed at the same time.

Great for the track

This is definitely a must if you take your car to the track. The LSD really shines at corner exit and inspires a lot of confidence. I could immediately tell there was better “pull” and traction at corner exit and has improved my lap times. While driving on regular roads, there are no additional sounds or any other harshness that I’ve noticed. I had to dig through forums to find the differential bearing part number as no Chevy parts site lists the part for Chevy Sonic’s. The part number is 55572486 and is listed for Chevy Cruze’s but will fit Chevy Sonic’s since they use the same transmission.

it is not merely for accelerating in corners,

far enhancing as linear control while accelerating and breaking both, don’t know why but this is awesome!!
