Re: Diff Woes

Did you soak the clutches in diff oil for a few days?

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

Re: Diff Woes

If you shim up the clutch pack to factory specs with clutches that haven't been soaked properly, then it will bind until the clutches wear in or wear out. It can actually strip the friction lining off the clutches.

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.
