One tire Fire :) Fluid dirty or clutches bad

Is there anyway to tell if my limited slip rear end is actually working? Should both tires spin when taking off or does it always leave a "one wheel burnout".

I was trying to test my EGT sensor last night and while doing so in my driveway i powerbraked the truck to get the exhaust temps up and while doing so, only one wheel broke loose in the gravel when the breaks gave way. I realize that they are not true posi track rear ends but any info is appreciated.

Also its about time to flush/fill the fluids on the front and rear diffs. Anyone know of a proceedure to do the rear diff? Is the gasket reusable or is it a "make your own out of blue silicone" type? Also what is good to use to flush the rear end? How much friction modifier do you add? I think the bottle is 8oz but do you add the whole thing?

ANy way to tell if the clutch packs in the rear end are bad?

Thanks,

Depends how fast that wheel was spinning. If it wasn't enough to lockout the limited slip engagement, it won't do anything. Typically on limited slip, you'll have a one wheel burnout for some distance, then both will engaged.

No kidding. I posted it for the examples of a limited slip in operation, which is clearly shown... Thanks.
