Ever notice the pickup ahead of you at the stop light has a big bump in the rear axle? That’s the differential, and it’s job is to transfer power from the draft shaft to each of the axles. Some differentials are open (free spinning) while others have what is known as positive traction, or posi-trac for short. These units have a limited slip system built in, so that if one wheel slips, all of the power is not lost through the spinning wheel. This is especially important in northern climates where ice and snow are commonly found on roadways during the winter months. When servicing these limited slip units, it is important to include a special posi-trac fluid in with the heavy weight gear lube, otherwise your posi-trac clutch system may fail prematurely. Don’t let this happen to you! Bring your truck to German Performance of Atascadero/Paso Robles, where we know our stuff!

Why is it important to service your differential on a regular bases? After a certain amount of driving, moisture and debris will work it’s way into your differential, thus accelerating wear.
