hey, i jacked my 7 up the other day, and i don't know why , but i started her up, and but her in gear, had her idling in 1 with the rear wheels off the ground, only my rear left tire was spinning, but i was able to spin the other tire by hand ( not as easy as my left tire spins, but still turnable.

Oh BTW , i a 90 GXl, i wanted to put a tii rear end in because of the LSD, but my buddy told me it wouldn't fit, true or not, and hm... if not, what LSD should i get ????



thanks in advance

1 tire spins because either your car does not have an lsd or its worn out. A t2 rearend will work, but you need the entire drivetrain then.

to put the t2 stuff in you need the whole deal like the other guy mentioned

Look for a tag on the drain bolt or fill bolt on the rear it will say "LSD" on the tag.



Another test: Jack it up and hold one tire still while you have a friend try to turn the other one, you should be fighting each other.



Another Test: Do a burnout and see if only 1 tire is peeling out.
