    VF 2 LSA R8 Noisy Diff

    Car has done a couple of thousand K's with the Wife driving it.
    I drove it yesterday and noticed the diff whines when you back off the throttle.
    Has anyone else had this problem with the LSA diff?

    My 14 GTS did it after 20k,was really bad as you could hear it over the radio.
    Would do it when ever you either feathered the throttle or backed off just between 60-70kph,was very annoying
    Dealer got a new diff authorized from HSV and now perfect.....

    What year model is your car ?

    just curious if this was a manufacturing fault with specific models of the VF LSA...

    Call me crazy but I drop my engine oil at 1000km / New oil filter even if HSV / Holden don't

    usually at 5000 i do complete overhaul of all oils / fluids and filters
    Engine oil
    Gear box
    Diff
    Radiator Fluid

    More to get rid of any possible shades of metal in the system...call me crazy / paranoid but I treat my car like my kids (not that i have any hahaha)
