Also for more info just do a search on viscious coupling you will have alot of reading. My VC went out on my ZJ just after I bought it but I was lucky the dealer went good for the repair. And if I Knew then what I know now I would have got them to swap a 242.
Got a 96 GCL 5.2L, any idea of what milage to expect from the VC? Got a symptom that probably is rear diff. limited slip, but also could be the VC.
