I am sure that is a limited slip in the front, so both wheels are not turning? If not usually it is a actuator that engages the front end. Not to mention the possibility of the front end needing to be gone threw for maintenance.

You have more weight on the front axle and more traction on the front wheels. If you have miss-matched tire sizes front and back there will be problems as well. If only one rear tire is spinning then the problem may be with the limited slip differential.
