Center differential

Recommended Posts

Runs fine on straight road, but during intricate turns I get the binding.


When an AWD transfer case is locked, something has to give, either the tires will slip and/or likely find the weakest link in the AWD.


My AWD truck has a viscous coupler like the MT Subaru have. The VC is a sealed unit, when they lock the plates inside the VC fuse together. Because its a sealed unit it does not contaminate anything else, I imagine Subaru are the same way. The common is failure in my truck from a lock VC is broken front passenger axle or damaged front differential.
