Do intrepids (specifically 97 3.5s) have any form of limited slip differential or do they completely free spin.

Both of the intrepids I have owned were previously owned by the elderly and driven pretty easy, and when I got them I remember both being able to spin both wheels (to some extent, but they were always right wheel biased) although after having them for a few years both seem to become completely right wheeled. Is it all in my head or is there something that I am wearing out?

I know when i stoped on pavement stalled out the converter and took off, both weels spun for about 4 foot and then it hooked and took off, both wheels always spin except in the snow, and in the mud....

They are open from the factory, but there are aftermarket LSDs available.

Just to clarify, you are seconding that statement and verifying it as true....or are you simply restating it, because if one member believes it they can't possibley be incorrect.

Ok, if you don't believe the one who responded to your question, listen to some one who has had it out on the floor, it is open, no factory LSD.

No 42LE transaxle is equipped with an LSD from the factory.

Man.... I gotta get me one of these! Along with a few other mods! :)

If both tires spin, it's because traction was equal on both sides.
The nature of an open differential is the torque will go to the side with the least resistance. Remember the main purpose of a differential is to allow the drive wheels to turn independant of each other for cornering and stability.
