Default Which Torsen LSD?

I had always assumed this was a popular Type-2 Torsen, but it appears to be a variation of that theme, with the same parallel axis for both the outer gears and the side gears. The original Type-2 has 3 pair of outer gears (6 total), while this one has 12, shorter outer gears, all meshing with each other (no pairs).

Torsen Type-2:


Like Phate? (animation, just 6 short, outer gears):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W96fOdMZnXE

The animation shows wheels spinning in opposite directions. But outer gears would spin slowly when in a corner, with side gears at different speeds, spinning in same direction.

Just a curiosity. Torsen now has many different versions supplied to the OEM car makers.

Are the Suspension Spring Specialists, aka "Blue Coils" basically a drop in spring? I had been planning on buying BC coilover height adjusters and QA1 springs. I am not finding blue coils for sale anywhere. Guess I can call manufacture.

Also saw some post with what looked like other possible options:
MS6 Suspension Data & DIY Bilstein Coilovers

Driving home from FL to CT in the next few weeks and car will be riding on bump stops whole way home which causes ass to pucker every time I go over a big bump, but made it down here fine. Shipping some stuff home but will still be overweight. Would love to get stiffer springs before that but likely not going to happen. Problem is even empty rear is too heavy for OEM springs so need to fix when I get home.

Filling rattling full homo only set up (for me) with 600 springs, front

I know this is super old post. But what/where did you get the upper mount to turn the bilstein shock into a coilover. I see where to get all the other parts.
