Transmission slip

Hi There all,

Got a question, Has anyone had any experience with what seems to be a transmission or axle slip when turning left or right agressively and adding power.
Here is some back ground information. I had a rear axle seal leak on the right. The shop changed the seal and bearing on the left and the right rear axle. Now the transmission, rear end or something seems to be slipping when I go around a corner to the left and add power. Dosen't do it going to the right. Any Ideas would be great.

Thanks,
Flyboy

Re: Transmission slip

If your jeep has Quadra Drive, its probably lack of limited slip additive to the diff fluid. Without the additive, the Vari-loc will completely lock both rear wheels together and when making a turn, one of the 2 wheels will have to slip.
