LSD Rear end issues
I run a 04 XL 3L ranger with the 4.10 Ford LSD in the rear. The truck has 75,000KM (so ~50k miles).
Yesterday I got stuck in a bit of deep snow... spun the tires a bit trying to get out, but nothing over 3500rpm and for no longer then 20-30 seconds at a time. Then all of a sudden while one tire was spining freely on ice the other tire started jerking and making a loud *clicking* sound. No everytime the LSD should be engaging both tires one or the other just makes this horrible notchy *clicking* sound and does essentially nothing.
Diff blown? Is that possible after only 75,000KM!? I never beat on this truck ever.. its never been stuck in anything other then snow on city streets. Can a little deep snow possibly blow the diff up? Is this a common issue with ranger LSD's?
Any possible feedback would be great here guys I'm scratching my head pretty hard over this one!
The truck has also ALWAYS been dealer serviced where I bought it.
