Anyone try to tighten up the rear diff? Did it help at all? Thanks.
I played the "tighten it up" game a bunch of times and it's just a waste of time. First I tried to thicken up the shims, little to no difference. I then added a extra clutch spring to each side, this helped a little but not much. Ended up with a Detroit locker just like ALL my other truck. That 10.5 L/S is a waste of time. Sorry!
I've got a LS rear(factory) dually and it lights both sides easy!! I've only got 16,500 ml. on it though..Never heard of that as a cure. Tractions bars didn't help my rear light both wheels. The stock LS rear is easily over powered w/ the aftermarket tuning. Maybe its just my rear,(doubtful) and frictions are baked? If they are I think I'd rather just get a Locker and be done w/ it instead of having to nurse the stock rear.
There is a BIG difference between the 10.50 Ford Sterling axle found in the SRW trucks and the Dana 80 found in your dually. The Dana L/S found in your Dana 80 actually works!I've got a LS rear(factory) dually and it lights both sides easy!! I've only got 16,500 ml. on it though..
Back. I know of at least three trucks around here that run or ran them in the back of their pulling trucks and to date I have never seen one fail.For the front or back? And lubeowner, do you know of a driveshaft company in the Minnesota/Wisconsin/Iowa area that upgrades driveshafts and crap? I thought I saw you mention it in another post somewhere.
