limited slip differential usually found in rear wheel drive vehicles. dont know the specifics but i think it engages both wheels when in 4 wd or atleast alternated between the left and the right

What happens is that they lsd causes the hondas to be a 3 wheeler instead of true 4 wheel drive at times because as soon as there is more resistance on one of the wheels that one stops and the other keeps spinning.......by gently applying your front brake when this happens it puts resistance on both wheels so it spins both of them.......... Basically if there is the same amount of resistance on both wheels then you will not have this problem .........that doesnt mean every time you hit a mud hole you are going to have to do it just when you notice that only one wheel is spinning then you can do it to get you out .........But as for the locker it is the next thing on my list to do to the 500 and 450

an open differential spins the tire with the least resistance now if i remember right a limited slip turns the tire with the most resistance ie:the tire with better traction
