    Default C56 Driveline Judder

    Hi. . .

    My car's developed a pronounced juddering on 1/2 - 3/4 - full? lock; AFAIK only when turning left. . .

    It's been building for a while; at first I thought it was just the tyre rubbing on the wheel-arch liner so didn't pay it much attention but it's recently gotten a fair bit worse (strangely enough only after I picked up a C160 which has been sitting in garage while I summon the motivation to actually put it in. . . ).

    At first I thought it was the LH drive shaft's CV joint but the symptoms are quite different; it's more of a bucking / jumping / juddering than the clicking normally assoc. with stuffed CVs. The importer I got the C160 off also doubted it was the shafts; he said that unless the boots have been torn (which they aren't) the shafts rarely fail.

    I then did a bit of Googling & apparently EG Honda's get this quite a bit & with those cars it's usually the LSD. If you're lucky a change of oil can save the day; if you're not. . $$$

    Was just about to swap in a spare LH drive-shaft but I think I probably need to pull my finger out & swap the box; or at least change the oil & see if it makes a difference.

    Has anyone with an AE92 / 101 / 111 with an LSD g/box had a similar issue?

    PS: What's the recommended lubricant for these ? The C56 was also bought off an importer; AFAIK its running the OEM helical LSD**

    **How can you tell what type of LSD's in a box?

    An intact boot is not an indication of healthy cv joint.
