Default clutches for small case LSD?

Anyone ever find rebuild parts for them? I have no reason to go to a larger case diff, but my LSD is getting a little tired. Haven't seen much info on rebuilding the small case ones.

Metric is a tad pricey for what I want to deal with, great stuff though.

Have you asked diffsonline? Maybe he'd sell you just the clutches.

Just shot diffsonline an email....145 bucks ea...2 in the diff...

I didnt pay much more for a complete torque bias diff for my ford. One of the few expensive bmw parts I guess.

I'll put it on the list of things to do. Needs a trans and motor first.

There is lot's of good info in this thread:
http://www.e30performance.info/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=939

They say Porsche 944 clutches fit, if they do they are way cheaper than diffsonline:

I think the 944 clutches go into a medium case BMW diff, no one answered the guy looking for small case parts.

http://r3vlimited.com/board/showpost...7&postcount=23

Maybe the 924 or 914 has a small case diff and the clutches from that would work?

I really don't think anyone gives a crap about the 168's. Most people go with the 188 because of the I6 power...

Which sucks for me, because I could care less about more power. Just want a good LSD and MPG.

The 924 has a different clutch part number and it's cheaper than the 944 part as well.

http://www.autoatlanta.com/results.p...332%20551%2010

Says it is 2mm which is how thick the BMW clutches are.

So I started thinking about this again and believe I found the answer. In Metric Mechanic's differential pdf they say that the 168mm diff is used in all 4cyls and the E21 320i.

I found this thread about a 320i lsd rebuild http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1115194

Which lead me to the realoem parts diagram
http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...29&hg=33&fg=15

So the clutch disk part number should be 33141203806
