(and the correct term even if the car did spin 2 wheels is a LSD)

I think the DOHC 3.4 has a 3.43 or 3.47 ratio... I forget exactly which one off the top of my head... So it should spin on call.. But its a 60-E, and I have never seen one from the factory with an LSD... If there was one it would have been a hot commodity a long long long time ago...

is the reason that they both spin is cuz the FWD and all the weight being on the wheels? cuz thats what i can think of to be the reason for it...

chill dude, I just want some cheap posi

I'm just saying what I've seen. It'* just a stock monte with the 3400.

And he doesn't have the 3.33. His first gear shifts at 53mph. Redline is 6k.

I didn't mean to make some controversy, I just want to know if anyone has heard of this or if it is possible to swap the [possible] posi from it'* diff with my gears.

If its a 3400 what year is the Monte? There is a difrence between the 60 and 65-E'*

And being a 96, is it the 3400 or the 3.4 DOHC? Big diffrence here

And disregaurd the 65-E.....

After some research the only 3400 used in the monte for 96 was the DOHC 3.4 Vin X.. He should have an RPO for FW9 or 3.43 Gear ratio...

Is this Monte an LS or a Z34?

These parts may work in your trans, but I can't say 100% for sure.. You'll have to rip the entire trans down to get to the Diff

It'* a 3.4 DOHC. I'm pretty sure it'* Z34, it has twin dual output exhaust. And it'* a 96. I'll ask him tomorrow about his RPO codes, and since it'* snowy as crap we'll do a real posi test... one wheel in ice one on dry.

With FWD auto transaxles, can you lift both front wheels off the ground and spin one side to see if it'* limited slip like a RWD axle?

There was a time when one of my cars wouldn't do that.

That differential is now sitting on a shelf in my entertainment center.
