How to definatively test your rear end positraction
Jack up the rear end (both sides). Have a buddy hold
one tire and you try to turn the other. If you can turn
it pretty effortlessly, you need new clutch packs in the
spider gears in the differential.
I did mine last night. The clutch packs were about $190
and about $100 for labor (Prolly cause I helped he charged
me double <grin> !)
But I sure learned a LOT about rear ends during the process.
My clutches had ZERO material left on them and the steel
plates were chewed all to he!!. What a difference with the
new ones. I figure I was losing about .2 or so in the 1/4
just to slippage. And on the roadcourse, I was always
spinning the inside rear tire. (And therefore destroying the
tire back there)
We'll see how the beast moves now.
