i broke my passenger side axle while in 4wd but my driver side tire quit turning while i was
still in 4wd does it have some type of limited slip or what? any suggestions? it still
engages and everything but tire wont pull
Almost all trucks and large SUVs come from the factory with an open front Diff. For the exception of H1's, Powerwagon's, Rubicon's and other import based vehicles that have lockers. Or the new raptor (which I think has limited slip now?) and various smaller SUV's and crossovers that have either limited slip or torque transfer/vectoring. So long story short you will not have 4wd untill the axle is fixed.
Yah. Limited slip or lockers in the front axle can create interesting handling issues that the regular person may not be able to handle. Plus they are expensive and if mis-treated would be a high wear/breakage item for warranty and eventually the owner. I don't know what the H1 has for safety but the Jeep and the PW both have to be in low range to engage the lockers and at a certain speed the PCM/Smartbar will dis-engage it. What year is your truck. Aftermarket upgrades may be available if you wanted full/true 4x4.
Yeah. Without a differential in the Transfer Case, the drivetrain will bind when cornering. In the snow, rain or mud it's not a problem because the bound wheel(s) will slip. On a dry surface, they will bind and potentially damage a drive train component - like an axle. Some call it "Part-time 4 Wheel Drive" because it's intended to be used only in slippery conditions.
@Tracy Almost all new 1500 Dodge Ram's or Ram's have a full time system. With 2wd (no power to the front end), 4wd and 4wd Low (front and rear output shafts turning the same). There is no diff in the transfercases if this design. A chain connects the front and rear shafts, and a planetary gear set for low. Some of the older Dodges (Pre-mid80's) had the center diff, part time system. It has been dropped for the more fuel efficent 2wd mode. Some smaller vehicles use it.
Question. Im putting a 1947 dodge truckon a 2001 durango. I'm useing a 1999 318. I'm planing on useing a transmission and transfer case from a 1993 dakota I've just noticed that the 2001 durango front end is what I think is called full time. If the transfer case from the 93 dakota isn't set up for this type of differential. What's going to happen?
