  • As I understand it, all of the "is" 535's have LSD (limited slip differential). In terms of what it is...most people recognize it by the trade name of posi-traction. It makes both of the rear wheels turn together, giving you better traction. When looking at a 2.93 or 4.10 rear end, you are talking about the gear ratios. The higher the number (i.e. 4.10) rear end the lower the...

  • Your best bet is to pull the driveline, have it rebalanced and replace the guibo (flex disk) and bearing on the driveline. I had it rebuilt for about $140 total. Make sure that when you re-install the driveline that you hook the rear and front, then preload the center bearing by pushing toward the front of the car, then tightening the bolts.

  • You have to remove the coolent overflow tank and all of the coolant hoses going back into the firewall/heater core area. This will allow access to the bottom bolt. I had to do this about three months ago. I thought I could be cool and do it without removing all that stuff, but in the end the Bentley manual was correct. It was easier after that.
