Re: OT Dana 80 in a tow rig messed up need advice
Having many vehicles with LSD's in them, I'd also say it was the limited slip. One I had used to pop like that, under power, and it was the friction plates sticking together. Another bottle of friction modifier and it came out of it. It's also do it in the corners, but sound like a hub grinding, and feel like a locked in front end on pavement. The rear end was just too tight. In fact, one of the ones I have now (Trooper with 164K on it) will lock up too tight and always chirp the tire, even when I don't mean to. Add another can of the modifier and do several tight figure eights in a parking lot to get the modifier into the clutch packs. It should come out of it. An additional can won't hurt anything either, just don't overfill it too much.
