Ben, all series II SGs have a rear viscous LSD. Cannot find whether the series I had or not. I seem to recall that all Foresters have a rear LSD, but cannot find the info.

Yes a clutch LSD rear diff is easy to do & very effective. Choices are OEM from a JDM WRX STi (mine's a V2), KAAZ or Cusco

2003 base model SG had no rear lsd . No idea which year all SG's got rear lsd's and no idea if higher spec 2003's got lsd's.

From Subaru Forester Technical Specification P-FTB03 for the then new SG:

"All models, manual and auto, are also now fitted with a viscous limited slip rear differential"

Does this mean ALL models including 2003 base model? It appears that my 03 SG has a open rear diff (can hold one wheel and other one still turns)

So you need change all diff or just insides from jdm wrx. That would be little hard to find i guess.
