What parts from an LNF will swap onto an LSJ and be considered upgraded?

I know of a few parts that can be swapped from an LNF to an LSJ but I'm probably missing some, and considering the LDK if anything from that.

DO NOT attempt to put k04 on LSJ, your tuner will hate you and you will hate your car, get a turbo kit from ZZP or HAHN if you want turbo

Brembos
Shifter bracket
Seats
Front grille
Control arms
Struts
Shocks
Springs


I think that is it. Timing chain tensions and TOB but those need bought new from GM.

Debatable on the front grille, lol. I like the SC grille better and the SC lower grille that CrateEngineDepot sells.

Do you run a winter wheel/tire setup? I think that the Brembos won't clear 16" steelies.

If you would never put a K04 on it's a good thing you posted this question in the LSJ performance section

if you have an 07 SC the Radio in the TC may have the USB port, which is plug and play, well ma need to be unlocked at the dealer.

interior is nicer(IMO) LSD if it has it nd you dont, but your Final drive gearing is better

LSJ had LSD options.
The interior is exactly the same aside from the seats.
Define "better". The LNF trans is weaker.

I was saying if he doesn't have LSD in his LSJ and the LNF does, he could swap it.

and your right on the interior, I should've specified, because I wanted to include the door panles, as they wont match unless the TC is Black/Black. you know how that goes....

the lnf uses an f35 with a different final drive so how is it weaker

LNF control arms have a 1mm larger ball joint and pin that goes into the knuckle.


Only the final drive is different?

I would not consider 1mm that big of a difference you can buy aftermarket and put the same parts in an lsj arm and as far as I know the only difference is the final drive

you can nls the lsj its not just as easy as the lnf the reason why lnf will destroy the tranny is the final drive (3.85 vs 4.05) puts more stress on the gear set(3rd) and also how the power comes on dose not help either the blower power delivery is more linear and dosent kill the driveline like a snail will
