My Spartan Locker is pissing me off. Binding and unloading in reverse, regardless of pavement or not.
The first video is with the rear axle on jack stands, transfer case + transmission in Neutral. Following the lunch-box locker "spin test" I have the passenger side tire rolled forward and locked with a block of wood. This video is of the driver's side. I get identical results, no matter which side I'm turning.
Watch as the drive shaft quits spinning. Is that normal? Do I need to investigate something else? I'm half thinking that I have sticky rear brakes.
In this video, my first trip down the driveway, I'm in neutral. On the second trip, I throttle into it a wee bit. You can really tell what happens when there's a load when I reverse uphill on the street. I feathered the throttle to get back in the driveway and coast down to the garage.
