The very nature of a plate type differential means that it will produce some noise. More often than not, this noise will be more prominent when the unit is first installed, but will drop-off with use

Our best advice is install the unit with a good LSD oil, then straight away put it to work. If you have the space carry out some figure of 8's and lots of tight turns with as much throttle-load as you can. Your LSD will quickly 'settle in' and work at its best. It's best practice, and our recommendation, to replace the oil with fresh after around 30 miles of driving

It does depend on the type of use it is getting. Units that see road and track day use can go for years and years, and still outperform other LSD types. The rule of thumb is if you feel like the performance has dropped, get it serviced. Very generally, if the unit gets a heavy amount of motorsport use, it is good practice to service the unit at the start of every season
