Yours is no different than any other Titan in that you have an open rear differential. You also have 4 wheel ABLS which uses the ABS system to apply the brake to a slipping wheel....that's why you get the slip light.So I have a question regarding Titans and LSD's. I have an 08-XE bare bone's, no special options (4x4, CC too). From a dead stop, dry pavement, I can lay 2 nice black strip's down for about 10-15 yards, then the rear end "unlocks" or does somthing, becasue only after the initial 10-15 yards of possi, only 1 wheel wonder after that. My slip light does come on, but i've yet to figure out or feel exactly what that light is telling me?? I can stuff the rev. limiter with the light flashing too!. When I was test driving Titans, both 08-XE's, one of them was 1 wheel wonder all the time. I bought mine becuase it would "hook up possi" for a bit, so naturally i thought it had at least a LSD. Mybe mine has the e-locker? I dont have VDC button, e-lock button, none of that. (hinse questioning the LSD) any ideas?
There's no limited slip Titans, only the ABLS. All years are the same in that aspect. As you mentioned, the ABLS uses the brakes to slow the spinning wheel...in the rear when in 2WD and on all 4 while in 4WD. The Elocker can only be used while in 4LO (if you have Elock) so that may be where you got that from. There is no limited slip...only electronic traction aids.So I read that the 08 and up have a different set up? Here is the question, when is the limited slip actually there? (without the E lock option) I read here that there is no real limited slip in 2 wheel drive high or 4 wheel drive high. The truck uses the brake system to stop the one spinning wheel. If thats true, then how do things change in 4 wheel low to make it a limited slip? And again the difference in years? Does anyone really know? Thanks.
