Do I need FM in there as well? Could the wrong fluid in the diffs be causing my binding in tight turns?
It usually says on the tags if you need FM...

Roadcrew,

Don't suppose you could send the request for me for the build sheet. It won't let me complete.the request as I'm in the UK.

VIN is 1J8G8E8282Y119728.

I'll probably still need you tell me what diff I have!

Look by your shifter. Does it say quadra trac or quadra drive?

Quad tracs do not have vari loc axes and should not get FM.

I read somewhere on here that you could option for a rear vari-lok...Here - http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/...l#post11898611

But as this thread is only regarding a problem at the front it's not relevant.

I think he's isolated it to the front axle and if it was the diff it would affect both right & left turns, wouldn't it? No, not necessarily I suppose.
