Very true tyler, with the l/s or the torsen l/s I believe they work better if the right amount of friction addetive is in, with out it it will just slip, not a hundred % sure but I believe that's wright. so adrian did you check your diff fluid level. if I 'm wrong with my reasoning then somebody will say so. to the OP good luck with the find in Florida :)

friction modifier in ford diffs, i believe makes the synth fluid slipperier, which will cause the clutches to slip so that you can go around corners, (think of it as oil on your brakes) if you don't add the fluid, the clutches grab much harder, and works more LIKE a locker, but will still slip at a certain point, the problem with this, is when it does slip, it's like burning the clutch in your trans, it will wear them right out!

this is how i was described when i worked at an oil and lube place... weither or not it is correct is another story...

and i'm not sure, but mopar and/or gm may do it the opposite way, where the friction modifier makes the lube LESS slippery, but i don't think so

I believe your right, knew I had it backwards, lol I forgot about the spring and stuff that causes it to not slip. my bad.

also, as for the "colour" of the "bumpeur". it is kind of odd and the "speedometeur" is probably in km/h the mudflaps are nasty. as for the torsen, the axle tubes will be 3.25 if it is a 31 spline and 3" if it is a 28 spline "axeul" "torseun" MUHAHA

and its so true, all the canadian stereotypes are from the french. they are responmsible for all the 'u's and 're' instead of 'er' ...and they're tho ones that live in igloos and have pet beavers! not us! man...
Oh ****-A-You! French people that are not from Quebec are ok. Quebeckers (sp?lol) f*cked it up for all us other frenchies. And the french invented the Poutine so take that! I'm half french half english, and I don't have a pet beaver lol

Oh and it's not colour, it's couleur, and bumper is... well... idk what it is in french, same with torsen and axel lol

Friction modifier is often added to clutch-type limited slips to reduce customer complaints about clutch chatter that may occur when turnng corners. Chatter is a result of a L/S clutch sticking and slipping as it alternates between static (high) and dynamic (lower) friction.

The use of friction modifier is specified for Ford's clutched L/S, the Tracton-Lok, to reduce the static friction although the diff will function well without it - aside from the annoying chatter.

Gear type L/S diffs like the Torsen and Eaton Truetrac use a metal to metal interface that has far lower static friction, thus no chatter. They do not require friction modifier.

I went to the dealer and tried to find that truck they had advertised. It wasn't there. Perhaps someone took it home for the holidays to drive...

I plan on calling tomorrow or something to see if they still got it.
