    Can an LSD lock up?

    Noticed on way home the other night tyres howling when turning right and on subsequent photo shoot last weekend similar chirping on turning and bends.
    I have a Curries LSD 9" centre section, wondering if it's somehow locked up?

    Had it jacked up and all wheels turn freely and don't rub anywhere.

    On my hauser lsd it does the same ish - how it is when inner wheel rotates less etc and outer getting dragged round more bound by the lsd probably especially in a light car like yours

    If the axle makes a noise Hauser recommended this and it does help
    Limited slip differential LSD friction modifier additive

    that chirping and chattering could be wrong additive in or none at all, had one the same clicking , and on bends chatter, wierd sounds from back end, drained it and put the right oil and a small gm additive in and it cured it, get the right one though, ford have there own , so does gm, think mine was 20.00 tiny bottle, transforms rear end

    Proper additive added already. All worked fine till last week on way home - then suddenly its been howling on cornering?
    Not driven it since so might be ok again now????

    Should I do some figure of 8's to make the clutches slip?
