Limited Slip is GONE

Like I said, the Limited Slip has turned into unlimited slip. When I get on it to hard my passenger side rear tire lights up and thats all she wrote. Whats the most cost effective way to remedy this issue and is there anything good to do in the front. I almost got stuck yesterday on flat ground in a grassy field towing a tandem axle trailer with a Nissan Quest mini van loaded on it.

There is an old trick of putting one foot on the brake and the other on the throttle, using the brakes to slow the spining wheel, forcing some power to the other wheel. Thats the cheap ghetto way, your other option is to either rebuild or replace your LS diff. I would recommend replacing with a Detroit tru-trac ( badazz clutchless limited slip), but not cheap.

I'll be honest it took me an hour to install my trutrac but I put on new carrier bearings before I started. I took a pattern and checked backlash after I was done and it was fine. No adjustments needed.

If you want someone to take measurements and use new shims it's going to take a bit longer but a lot of times this isn't necessary.
