    i thought it was always spinning? when you activate 4wd it just engages the hubs right?

    Then why do we need a transfer case, just for 4l? I would be surprised if the transfer case is awd. But what do I know, lol @FordTechOne

    Transfer case transfers and splits power to front and rear. AWD trucks have them as well.

    The transfer case in these is electronically shifting, it does engage/disengage the front driveshaft. 4wd selection activates the IWE and selects front output and high or low range.

    Glad to see your progressing, tenacity pays dividends!

    No friction modifier is required for the front axle. Friction Modifier is only used in clutch based limited slip differentials.

    I see what you mean, I was referencing the Owner’s Manual. Strange for a helical differential, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt to add it since the supplement calls for it.

    Would a Torsen diff not typically Require friction modifier because it does not have the clutches like a plate style limited slip?
