Question Hilux LSD Problem

I have a 2.7 hilux with limited slip diff that whenever I go around a corner under heavy torque the inside wheel spins. I have replaced the clutch plates, re shimmed the clutch springs to give slip torque of 140 Nm(originally was 80 Nm), have tried various LSD oils and at present using Castrol LSX, but the inside wheel keeps spinning under torque depending whether going left or right. This is all on tar. The wheel spins so that the engine goes into rev limit but as soon as the vehicle levels out the sliiping stops. On a normal pull away with lots of accelaration 2 black spin marks are left on the road. I have read about friction modifiers which I wondered if that would work but have not been able to find such.

If anybody can give advice it would be appreciated.

I can't say as I would know what would be wrong, But I don't think what you are describing would have to do with the lube. The friction modifiers are to allow smooth engagement and disengagement of the clutch packs. When there is a problem with the fluid it results in chatter.

Don't talk about it, Just do it!

kinda but not really. the rear end should lock up under enough torque no matter what. my lincoln used to only burn out with 1 tire then 2 sometimes but the clutches were worn.

Most lsd's are just that. They only limit wheel slip. Only on occasion you will find one that works really well in a turn. As far as clutch loaded lsd's, Eaton is about you're best. They offer two lines. Street and Pro. The Street version is probably only a little better than stock. The Pro. version is better, it worked really well for me in a 96 Ext cab Ford 4x4 with 35's. They too are completely rebuildable. If you want genuine positive traction, Detroit or spool. Neither are comfortable for daily driver.
