Hello, Which rear wheel pulls on my 95 F-150 4 wheel drive? Also which front wheel pulls?
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.
I know what it is, just didn't know how to explain. Thanks tennisshoes.
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.
