My reason for asking you was because you have snowchains, have you ever used them in mud, and if so, your comments.

No, I have only used them in snow. Never in mud. I have ventured in mud only once, and got royally stuck. Never tried again.

Folks
I've decided to put an LSD in my Gypsy. Is the Eaton Helical gear Truetrac suitable for the rear axle? The product literature only mentions Chrysler, GM, Toyota etc but no Suzuki.

Thanks

You could go for powertrax better than Eaton and some of us have used it.

Thanks. This doesn't look like an LSD - it is a fully locking diff.
I was looking at this - http://www.tractionconcepts.com/Suzu.../tcxsz4528.htm
Seems to be friction plate type. There are allegations this was earlier known by the brand name "Phantom Grip" and that it has destroyed many Axles.

This is an old thread and a lot of good stuff has already been discussed in this thread. Moving away from generics and fundamentals already explained - I would like to weigh the pros and cons of this design before I go for it.

Personally I'd prefer a full locker than a LSD as there is positive traction at all times. Setting up the locker correctly is the key to proper operation!!😋
