Q12. Will the driving characteristics of my vehicle change?

A12. For rear axle applications, any change will be minimal and usually unnoticeable. The operation of limited-slip differentials will be quiet, smooth and seamless. With front axle installations, there may be a slight addition to steering effort.

Q13. Are the ECTED Max and limited-slip differentials noisy?

A13. No. Operation is quiet and seamless with properly maintained lubricant and limited-slip additive. There is no clicking or banging.

Q14. How do Auburn differentials handle on slippery roads?

A14. Any traction can affect handling on slippery roads. If the traction is overpowered by the driver, both wheels have lost traction instead of just one, which could cause a loss of side-to-side stability.

Q15. Can I tow my vehicle if it has an ECTED Max and/or limited-slip?

A15. Yes. If the unit is installed in the front, it is recommended to unlock the front wheel hubs and/or place the transfer case in 2-wheel drive.

Q16. What affect will Auburn differentials have on my towing capability?

A16. The ECTED Max and the limited-slip differentials will not negatively affect trailer towing. In fact, you will find major improvement in traction. It will be beneficial when pulling the boat up the ramp, towing a camper on unpaved roads or anytime where increased traction is important.

Q17. Does the Auburn limited-slip differential affect gas mileage?

A17. This would be negligible typically. However, an Auburn limited-slip usually weighs more than an OE differential and since the clutches slip during turns, some energy loss does occur
