If you want to know if your truck has limited slip, it’s pretty simple. All you need is a jack and stands and a transmission in neutral. The first step is to unlock the rear hubs by removing the lug nuts. Next, place two jacks under each end of your vehicle until it’s level on all four tires. Then put the transmission in neutral so that all four wheels aren’t spinning at different speeds due to slippage or torque converter lockup (which can happen with some automatic transmissions). Now spin each tire separately while making sure that they all spin at the same speed together, if they do not then you have limited slip!
To determine whether you have a limited slip differential, simply jack up one tire. If the unjacked wheel spins, but the jacked wheel does not, you likely have a limited slip differential. However, if both tires spin together as they should in an open diff, then you most likely do not have limited slip.
To test if the tundra has limited slip, you’ll need to unlock the rear hubs. The transmission should be in neutral and the front of your vehicle should be raised off the ground. Spin each tire while holding one side of it stationary, then try spinning it again. If there’s any difference in how well they spin when held stationary versus moving, that indicates that you have limited slip differentials in place.
The first step is to level off your truck. The easiest way to do this is with a jack and jack stands. A good rule of thumb is that if you’re not using the parking brake, you can use the rear tires for support (the front will just fall off if there’s no weight on it). If you are using the parking brake, then it’s best to use the front tires as support until they are removed so that they don’t come loose while trying to lift up the truck.
Once you’ve got everything set up properly and have jacked up both ends of your truck, make sure none of those chocks or blocks are in place before starting!
Put the parking brake on and turn the wheels to the right, engaging 4×4 if equipped with it. If you don’t have 4×4, just turn your tires all the way to one side for now. This will still allow you to get a sense of whether or not you have limited slip.
Now turn back around and go in reverse, turning your tires all they way over to one side again so that they’re facing left this time (again without engaging 4×4). The wheels should spin freely without any resistance. If they don’t spin freely when going backwards, then there’s no question that you have limited slip!
In order to jack up your truck, you’ll need to use a jack stand. This way, the truck will be stable and your safety is ensured. Once the truck is on level ground, place the jack stand under an axle. The easiest way to do this is to simply place it under one of the front axles (the ones closest to you when sitting inside the cab). Then, use another jack stand as a safety measure by placing it behind each tire that’s on either side of your first jack stand so that if your vehicle starts rolling forward or backward while jacking up or lowering it down again, they won’t run off into something like a tree or parked car nearby.”
The easiest way to tell if your Tundra has LSD is to spin the tires. Start by placing jack stands under your truck with the front wheels raised off of the ground, then turn on your ignition and place it in neutral. While holding down on both brake pedals (or parking brake), spin one wheel at a time until you have it spinning as fast as possible without losing traction on any tire. If you’re able to get all four tires spinning at the same speed, that means that limited slip can be engaged by simply lifting your foot off of one of them and applying light pressure before putting it back down again.
It’s also worth noting that if you see two or more tires spinning slowly while others are going fast, this probably means that something is wrong with your vehicle—it could be anything from bad brakes or fluid levels being too low and we recommend bringing it into a local shop immediately so they can take care of whatever issue needs addressed ASAP!
The next time you are in the garage working on your Tundra, take a moment to check your limited slip differential. It’s a simple task that can save you from expensive repairs later on down the road.
