Front and Rear Differential Services
What is limited slip differential (LSD)?
This is a gear arrangement present in motor vehicles that applies rotational power to either your front wheels (for front-wheel drive cars), rear wheels (for rear-wheel drive cars), or both (for all-wheel drive cars). This is particularly important when your wheels are not travelling at the same speed, e.g. when turning a corner.
How do differentials work?
LSDs are torque sensitive so they work by transferring power to the wheel with the most traction. So when you are exploring the Outback in your 4WD, the LSD is able to respond to traction difference between your wheels and adjust the power accordingly.
At Automatic Transmissions R Us, we supply new and reconditioned Car Differentials, Drive Shafts, and Prop Shafts.
We can recondition or rebuild your differential, open or locked, with expert skill and care. If you have a Transfer Case it’s important to have it serviced regularly to avoid costly repairs.
