hey guys,

have a general question.
i have a vr ss (obviously LSD), now lets say i went to do a burn out both wheels should spin and leave 2 marks.(as far as i know)

now if i did a burn out and only the left wheel started spining and then after a while the other wheel kicked in, what does that mean?? :whistling

is the diff on its way out?? :rip: diff

or am i just stressin bout nothin

typical holden LSD, the cones in the diff wear out and you only have a single spinner. quiet common if you abuse the diff a bit. you can either pull the diff head out and have it reconditioned where they basically reset the preload on the cones as the original holden springs are a bit weak or fit and aftermarket LSD like KAAZ if your willing to spend about 2k. to check the diff just jack up one rear wheel (make sure the other is still firmly on the ground) and see if you can turn the other wheel, the gregories manual says it should take a minimum of 65nm of torque to turn the wheel, if not it needs to be recond.

Sounds like mines on the way out too then (91 VN V8 LSD). I get a metalic type thumping sound when the cars changing gears mostly into 3rd. All is bolted down tight in the rear end. Using TZ100 215's and the engine revs like **** with very little wheel spin.
Should stick the retreads on and see if they will spin up.

mine does that in the vk! (its not an lsd) and i have been told that its because i have done some F#cking huge burnouts that is fused the diff together or the axles or something (like when you weld a diff to lock it i guess)
