On July 14, 2021 I had the Kia dealer in Honolulu install a new LSD I bought on E bay into my 2018 3.3 GT. They said it is a factory new part installed by a dealer, so the change is under the Kia warrantee. Filled the diff with Royal Purple 75-90 with LS additive.
Cost?, Rear diff delivered via UPS to my door $2250, labor =$360. Car has 3,400 miles 'cause I mostly drive my 2017 Genesis G 80
3.8 L.

Is your stinger a rear wheel drive or AWD?

R and R and drive. The technician "may" have flashed the computer with the GT 1 specs, 'cause this model
has the LSD in as stock to be compatible with the traction control operated by the electrical anti lock brake system. I didn't buy the GT 1 cause the price was 8K over the GT. So I just bought a LSD and had the dealer R & R.
The tech just noted on the service order that the car drives as designed with the LSD.

My first impressions were that there was no changes to how it drives, no noises, no vibrations, car sounds and feels the same as before the change out.
I drove in a parking lot and made as tight a circle as possible, like 30 foot circle and there was no difference as compared to the open diff.
