Please post only if you actually know the answer and can provide a link to the supporting info.
I found the part #'s for both...
41100-RN4-000 diff assy $220
41100-RN3-000 diff assy $218
Anyone have any info on the FWD diff type?
Toyota RAV4 FWD has an LSD, want to know if a RDX FWD does as well.

Well I had to answer my own question after hearing back from the dealer - open diff.
Fully open diff.
No lsd for you.
#13 of 17 RDX vs CRV Re: ride, noise, handling
Sep 19, 2011 (5:12 pm)
I've read here and there that the RDX rides a bit stiff and is noisy. However, I know that can depend on what you're used to- or have put up with for a while. If you're coming from a first gen CRV into say, a 2007 model or later RDX, how does it compare to the CRV? About the same or is it a bit better? No illusions about the handling of the CRV, I don't try to make it do the things you could do with a Civic or Accord sedan, you just treat it like what it is. How does the RDX compare in handling to the CRV, if the rest is about equal or better regarding ride and noise? Thanks.

"..No lsd for you..."
No MECHANICAL lsd, but a "virtual" one.

No, it is an open diff.

Yes, a completely open front diff'l, but with TC "back-up" to provide a "virtual" LSD.

What does that mean in the real world of driving the new RDX?
