Only one rear tire spinning

Tonight I went into a grass field to adjust my new lights and it was a little soft. Trying to get out after adjusting my lights I only could get one rear tire to spin and had to put the truck into 4x4 to get out of the field. The field was soft but not that soft if I had both wheels spinning I could of made it out. Any suggestions on the problem. Oh and I did put new fluid in about 5000 miles ago so the fluid is clean and does have the correct fluid in

It's not really a problem, it is the normal way a differential functions. If you have the factory Limited Slip option, using less friction modifier when you change fluid could help but it's still not vary good. Your best bet is a locker but it will be expensive. You have a few choices from a automatic one to a selectable one or even a spool that ties everything together all the time. A selectable one is usually the most expensive and has more to go wrong but it will never lock when you don't want it or fight you when your towing.

friction modifier will not increase friction in the limited slip clutches, it's official purpose is to eliminate chatter while cornering in clutch style diffs. the factory limited slip kind of works for about 30,000 miles depending on useage before it's time to add shims.

next time try putting your e-brake on half way (if it works) if you really want both rears to spin. on my truck i can easily do a brake stand with a 2 fire tire but if i'm pulled over half on gravel, half off, the passenger side will spin for days without moving the truck.

Re: Only one rear tire spinning

Yeah its the passenger that spins. You mentioned shims what's involved with that. I haven't messed with rear ends much except change fluids. Is it an easy thing to do or is it not even worth it?

How many miles on your truck? The clutches may be wore out in the limited slip

If it was my truck I’d put in a Detroit Soft-Loc in the rear and if you have the funds, a True-Trac in the front. Selectables are real nice but it doesn't take much to wreck and air line or wire. Kclough suggestion of a spool in the rear for a street truck is absolutely ridiculous. Sorry kclough.

Re: Only one rear tire spinning

Thanks for the suggestions right now funds are a little tight I'm a college student working 30 hours a week just to stay afloat so I was mainly just looking at fixing it if its not too pricey and maybe few years then putting lockers in.

Only one rear tire spinning

If one tire is spinning then try running without any modifier then if, and that's a BIG if, you start feeling it grab going around corners then half the normal amount. Start there anyway but most likely the LS needs some work done on it. I did that with mine which fixed it up for one winter season and then it was toast.
