Why is it always the right rear tire?

    Just out of curiosity, why does my right rear tire always spin but rarely or never the left one? I'm talking about power braking, violent take-offs and such, not just rain. Although it does it in the rain as well. What gives? I'm tired of having one bald tire!!! /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Oh, this is about my 2002 GMC Sonoma 2wd. It's a short bed, 2wd with the 4.3, 4L60E and 3.42's. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That's the same conclusion I came to. I just wasn't sure if it could have been the brakes or my fat arse in the drivers seat or some other dumb reason like that.

    What would you run for a budget limited slip in the back? I was hoping to find a used factory one from a Camaro but have had no luck in my online searching. Anyone got a link?

    Look in summit for the take-out torsen's from f-bodies. They go for about $100.
