Weak LSD???

When my truck was stock with stock tires that thing would hook up and go. I have 3.55s and stock lsd.

I got bigger BFG all terrains and they didn't hook up as well but they did OK.

Now it seems like I can just roast them without power braking it which I could never do before. I don't think Edge is THAT much better than SC so could my LSD be busted? Should I just go outside and do a rowdy power brake and make sure I leave 2 rowdy black marks?

When I test my 0-60 I have to dump the brake and ease onto the gas. I used to be able to almost floor it off the brake. Not anymore.

I don't think the clutches are al that weak. But there's some little clips in the carrier that are notorious for falling out and causing all kinds of problems. It'd probaly be a good idea to pull the cover and look for pieces of metal.

Should I take it to the stealership or just do it myself? It might sound kind of weird if I bring it in and say "I opened it up and theres metal shavings all over the place"

Those open tread AT's have probably hardened up a bit since you put them on.

If your still turning both of them and with no bizzare noises from the rear your still good.

Trust me no one abuses a 9.25 corporate rear axle like I do........

haha that may be it. Maybe they just hardened up. I'm gunna make sure I still leave 2 long black marks.

If I didn't have a ranch or live by the lake I'd put some street tires on there but I need something that will work off road as well.

I've taken it through some stupid stuff. this one resulted in my dad's cummins pulling me out some mud up to my frame at 7AM
