haha yeah. so instead of spinning one wheel with no traction you can spin two! and then the two others that actually have traction will just sit there and look nice
They don't look that nice tho lol

The 04 has limited slip though, and what a difference.

have you tried draining the rear differential then cleaning it with 2 cans of carb/brake cleaner then replace fluid and at the ford additive? Shop did that before they tried to replace my clutch packs and it solved my problem. Was a lot happier I didn't have to replace them. Good honest shop right there. They told me they'd do it, let me drive around for a few weeks and if it didnt work the cost of that would count towards a clutch pack replacement

Anything before 00 used organic clutches and any sort of carb/brake cleaner will cause them to break down.
