Wheel spin with Anti-Spin Powered by Groupee Community

Okay, I know a LSD/ASD "should" transfer torque to the wheel with more traction (away from spinning wheel). To test mine, I placed one wheel on snow the other on pavement and the truck facing up a gentle hill. When I accelerated, the snow side tire spun quite a bit, but I did move forward (but at a snail's pace).

The question is, is this normal? Should more torque have been applied to the non-spinning wheel? Is this adjustable?

Nope not adjustable, but here is a test. Stomp on it from a stop on dry pavement, no spin or you leave TWO black marks, then you have anti-spin. If you leave ONE black mark, then you dont have anti-spin/limited slip.

Well, according to the sticker in the glovebox, it's "supposed" to have Anti-spin.

it depends on what type of limited slip you have because all trucks now come with l/s if you have a 2wd then you more than likley have an closed l/s which leaves two black marks and with a 4x4 you have open which does 1 black mark

Your "test" didn't allow it to fully engage. THe setup, from what I understand, is like a torque converter, and the whole mass has to engage in motion to lock. The ice fooled the system into thinking it was working, (No load to engage).

Hope that helps. Like preveously stated, romp on it on dry pavement for the best test!
