Hi I've got a nismo LSD in my car not sure if its a 1.5 way or 2 way, it's makes no sound when cold but after driving for a short period I notice a big difference especially when turning tight slow corners, is this normal, it has quite a lot of wheel skipping when manouvering it about once warmed up, just checking its normal cheers

My Nismo does make more noise when warm. It still knocks alittle but defo worse when hot! So would say its just normal!

I run redline 75/140 fully, I used to run Morris lsd oil that had a friction modifier and it really quietened it down. So might be worth adding some friction modifier if you don't like it!

Mine's a little more clunky when it's cold and is more noticable in Winter. When it warms up it's not as loud, like now it's Summer here and it's a lot quiter.

Mine is a lot more noticeable when warm and is actually very loud, will try different oil in it and see what it's like

Use one with friction modifier added already. As that will help quieten it down! Mine without it is so noisey when warm do I really need to get some too

This is normal fella you probably have a Nismo GT PRO like mine, makes that noise when its opening the plates and diff for parking and manoeuvrability.
