New Member, 1st Post, Limited Slip Questions
Hi All----My first post. I am retired and love the outdoors. I just bought my first jeep, a 93 wrangler, 6 cylinder 5 speed, with a 4 inch lift. One of the reasons I bought it is that I love to work on cars and it seemed to be a vehicle that an old guy like me can work on and figure out. It is moderately/heavily used and will need a good going through.----- The tires are trash and I have ordered new tires.---- But I noticed that both the all terrain tires on the driver side are much more worn than the 2 on the passenger side.------I have no manual.
1. In 4 wheel drive should both front wheels drive?
2. How do I tell if the vehicle has limited slip. In the front or rear?
3. If it has limited slip how do I test to see if it is working properly?
4. When I change out all the lubricants soon, what lubes should I use.
I have ordered a Chiltons repair manual, that has not arrived yet. I look forward to learning a lot from you all.
Any other tips would be welcome.
