Re: does slip resistant diff mean its an lsd??

Well sort of,, Spin resistant diffs work both wheels all the time, or untill one has to much drive than the other, then the one that has the less traction will spin, or when that wheel gets to its braking pressure. I had my T3 diff shimmed up tighter than standed by double the amount. The diffs come from the factory with 'X' amount of spin resistants, then with time that resistance drops to the point that there is none at all, the ezy way to tell is to jack 1 wheel of the ground and try to turn that wheel with a torque bar, then you can tell if your diff is working propley. I bet its not, they never are....

Re: does slip resistant diff mean its an lsd??

spin resistant is the same as a limited slip diff.

the first thing you should do is drop the oil and replace it with LS90 diff oil - do NOT put any additives in it - the additives released for commodore and falcon diffs to stop them chattering on slow turns only lessens the friction plates grip, defeating the point of the mechanism.

then you can see if its working properly, but thats not really what you asked anyway, its just a bit of advice.
