This saved me money. I was going to buy an LSD and 3.73 gears off of a guy from CL tomorrow. Thought LSD meant it had t-lok. Kind of sucks because I would have gotten them for only $100. But I want a tlok..From my understanding of differentials, that can happen. Limited slip differentials will basically provide power to the wheel that needs it most and provide power to both wheels when possible. With an open differential, it will only provide power to the wheel with the most traction but never both wheels. If you want to have both wheels constantly receiving power then you would have to have a locker instead of and LSD. And yes, Seafoam is great for cleaning out carbon build-up in your engine.
I'm confused here, most people on here say get a t-lok, are you saying just dont tighten it too much or what? I can't figure out if you mean it's a bad thing or a good thing to have both wheels spin on your DD.McQueen, have you ever had a stock stang stuck in the mud ? the wheel with the lest traction spins on an open diff trust me thats how you burn out
Ur Panic, Tloks came in GT's, it is a form of LSD. You can adjust the tlok(lsd) or so i was told, to make it lock together tighter or looser. Remember if its completely locked, when you take turns, one wheel will have to spin, the tlok/lsd are supposed to help from that happening as much. Have a 2 wheel burn out in a street driving car. A solid rear is pretty much for drag.
But this isnt by the book, im sure plenty of people drive w/ a solid axle on a dd. Not the most ... lets see ... "economic" i guess ?
