Is there a problem in the rear end when only 1 tires spins? At the track I can get both to spin but on the street some times only 1 tire spins. Any body know the cause and the solution to fix this?
Is the swap difficult? Is it like changing gears?I've burned though one set of clutches in my truck. I replaced them with factory clutches and have not had an issue for two years being in the mid 600hp range. That being said... I get the parts for free and I have the tools needed for the 9.75 carrier. If I had to pay for the swap I would go the TT route.
Sorry to hijack, but why chose TT over a "Detroit Locker" for a DD vehicle? I hear the locker is very well mannered on the 9.75 (compared to other sizes), but have no practical experience.
While I don't race at all, I am at around 80k miles and only want to get into the differential once... And since it's just about that time for me, I wasn't sure which way to go since i wanted something extremely robust.
According to its website its a Detroit Locker True-Trac
The Locker will put 100% of the power to whichever wheel is turning slowest then lock together when it catches up to the speed of the other tire. The new ones engage "soft" rather than feeling like slamming a manual transmission in gear without a clutch, but they still have a tendancy to get sideways easier when turning and accelerating. They are less likely than a tru track to ever spin one tire, but they are stll not as smooth and have less grip than a tru track when turning sharply while accelerating quickly (loie when you are pulling out of a parking lot quickly making a 90* turn while taking off quicky).
I currently have two trucks with Detroits and my L has a Tru track. Keep the Lockers in 4x4's and vehicles that are mainly for the track. Street vehicles drive better with a Tru track IMO.
I know its 9.75 just didnt feel like typing it. I seen the one on LFP and a few on the web at other places. Some said 28, 31, 34. Thats why I asked here to see what others put in theirs. Would hate to drop that kinda money only to have the wrong part. Im assuming its 34you want the 9.75" NOT the 9"
$40 cheaper than jegs or summit and its a supporting vendor.
34 spline according to description.
