I typed in Limited slip axle in. The first couple threads had that same exact link.
Also right above where this question was posted was the sticky for that link as well.

The search on here is no different then any other forum. It all depends what you type in to search for.

I have code 96 which is a open non ls but what I don't understand is when I'm going forward the passenger wheel will sit and spin all day if I let it then the other day I was backing up and the driver's side got on some ice and started to spin the passenger side was on dry pavement ?

thats what an open axle is....no limited slip or solid axle for you buddy


it will try to get traction on the tire that doesnt have any traction

thus if one tire is in mud and the other is on solid ground the tire in the mud will spin while the solid ground tire sits.
