Surely that's the point of a limited slip diff - it'll lock up when it needs to!


Limited slip diff is locked normally, but when one axle is getting too much traction, its slipping and allowing other axle to spin more than the other.
Visco Differential on the otherhand is working opposite way, locking it self when tire slip is present (Visco oil warming and stiffening = locking the diff)
This LT95 LS diff is pritty stiff, spessially when used with 80-90w gearbox oil (whitout LSD addetive, shud use LSD-oil in transferbox if this diff is placed in.

I have one in my RR-79 (with -72 LT95) and if I turn in asphalt parkinglot with little bit dust on it, it will slip one off the tires (differential lockkers not on) (tires are 35x15,5x15 baja Claws)

Sorry, my first post, and bad english. Just googleing this limited slip diff, cos i think mine is gone broken, only spinning front tires and moving like automat gearbox(slipping in lowgear) . Is it possible that this diff is broken so, that power is going only front axle trough slipping rings, not normal differential?

I think only a few lt95 boxes had this diff, sounds like your centre diff has broken and maybe your clutch is slipping as well, 35's are big for a rangie

I would think from the discription you give that the diff in the rear axle has broken, the centre LSD diff is doing it's best to send the power to the front, but it will still slip. What happens if you engage the centre diff? does the slipping go away?

I thought a standard 'viscous' and 'limited slip' diffs were basically the same thing. Both normally 'unlocked' allowing a degree of differential movement for steering etc but when too much shear was introduced the diff locks up so preventing excessive wheel spin on an unloaded drive member? If the lt95 'limited slip' was locked up all the time, in good grip conditions I'd imagine parts of the drive train would go bang or tyres would scrub out regularly ... exactly what happens if a Borg Warner coupling siezes ...

Has anyone used the LT95 gearbox before and what are they like for towing power, I got mine a far while ago for my project Land Rover but I have not got it fitted as yet. I would be very interested in any details people can share about the LT95's strengths and weaknesses.

No gearbox issues towing a 20 foot boat around - mostly on surfaced roads and the total weight probably wasn't that great. Recovering a Mercedes that had fried its clutch trying to haul its boat and trailer up posed no problem at all (I guess it was around a fifteen degree slope which had defeated the Mercedes - when I showed up and towed the whole lot up with no revving, no spinning and no smoking clutch everyone was laughing with amazement/relief). Recovering stuck vehicles off road hasn't caused any problems. If I recall correctly, reverse is said to be weaker than the forward gears - I've avoided recovering in reverse. Biggest problem with the 101 is that there aren't many trailers that hitch at the right height (drop plates always seem a bit suspect to me, but I use one), and, unless loaded or with more than suggested tongue weight (BUT too much tongue weight upsets tracking on most trailers), the rear suspension tends to be too hard/bouncy. Anyhow, in my limited experience, no gearbox issues towing.
