I've not heard anythign about a differnce in the drive shafts. Call your local dealership and get the parts dept to look at the part numbers and see if there is a drive shaft for a LSD.

excellent! the acceleration will be slightly better with the 3.23 diff, but say at 70 mph the revs will be slightly higher than normal. does anyone know where the speedo is driven from?
