Both are limited slip rear and front ends. Power transfers from one wheel to the other depending on traction.

Thank you. So one side is not more apt to pull than the other? It simply depends on the the traction?

Sorry Rowefast but a true limited slip differential once engaged will transfer power equally to both wheels and then go back to normal operation when traction equalizes on the tires, it is regulated by the amount of tire slip before it engages so you can turn a corner easily without having to fight it I fit was locked.

Yes, and on which way the last time the vehicle turned, if that makes any sense. But you would get pull from both wheels like going in a straight line down the road.

If you want to get down to Nast whiskers, the rear end will drive the right side until slippage happens then it transfers power equally to both wheels, then the front diff will drive the drivers front until slippage and then it will transfer power to both front wheels. Does that explain it better?

Thanks. I have a new spare and was thinking of putting it on the side that would benefit me the most. It sounds like it will not matter. I will but 4 new tires in the morning. I appreciate the feedback.

Well then all you do is not use the 4-wheel drive, Well now you learned something today about limited slip.

When I put the truck in four wheel drive my right rear tire locks up

If a rear wheel locks up then there is a problem with the differential or maybe the brakes. What kind of vehicle?

F-150 it just does it in four wheel drive

Drive find in two wheel drive

There is no reason why the rear tire lockup should be related to 4WD operation. Unless you provide more information no one can help you. Start a new question thread!

Do you have mixed size tires? Wrong gear ratio in one of the differentials?

No all tires are the same all I know is that the truck right rear tire does not roll in four wheel drive
