July 18, 2004limited slip isnt both spinning.
what style year of vehicle, what axles?
July 18, 2004either you`ll have to purchase a differential that offers the locking mechanism (limited slip). such names as auborn, detroit, ARB... etc. they all have differn`t types of locking methods and all cost different, depending on your axle. if you choose to replace the the differential youll have to do some adjustments to get the back-lash correctly.
or you can purchase a spool, it removes the differential completly, preventing the axles to rotate at differnt speeds. but that can cause problems when you turn corners, the outside tire rotates faster than the inside tire because it has a greater distance to travel, preventing the tires from doing so can sometimes lead to axle breakage, uneven tire wear, etc.
or you can weld the spider gears together in your current diff. this has the same effect as a spool.
