Buyer Beware! The internet is flooded with copy crap look alike pieces; on Ebay for example. Only buy genuine product on our website to ensure authenticity.

Traction Concepts products are designed to work alone and not with any other gimmick accessories sold by others.

Each Traction Concepts LSD Kit is assembled with pressure tested matched sets of progressive-rate springs to achieve equal load distribution to our LSD Disc Plates. Designed to work with OEM open differentials and dramatically enhancing traction performance and reliability.

How Does It Work?
Traction Concepts converts your open differential to an LSD differential. The design is simple and effective. Since 1997, our R & D team have perfected the alternative to welding your diff gears or replacing a perfectly good working differential. We continue to develop our LSD Conversions for modern performance and various conditions that see terrain changes.

  • Safe and suitable for the daily driver, to full race-high horsepower applications.
  • Popular in the mini-truck communities for work and play.
  • Noise and Chatter Free Smooth Engagement
  • BYOD-Bring Your OEM Diff (Front or Rear)
  • No Special Lubricant Needed to Use Our LSD
  • Does Not Interfere with Gear Ratio Changes

Cornering and Braking: Our Traction Concepts LSD Conversion kit’s precision cut LSD Disc Plates function as a disc-type limited slip during cornering and braking. The TC LSD Disc Plates exert equal load against the spider/axle gears using spring pressure to control the amount of slippage at the wheels. This allows you to accelerate quicker, while sustaining higher speeds through the corners.

Hard Launching, Burnouts, Drag Racing/Better 60' times, etc. : The Traction Concepts LSD Kit also functions as a locker- type LSD offering 50-50/100% locking in hard acceleration. When torque is applied through acceleration our LSD Disc Plates will pivot, locking the smaller pinion spider/axle gears, causing both wheels to exert equal power to the ground, providing less torque steer than an ordinary open differential.
