Need help from GM tech or GM employee
Last year about this time, my transmission failed.
Car is an 06 SS/SC with the G85 LSD option.
The dealer replaced the transmission.
Once back, I wondered if the LSD was indeed part of the replacement.
Part # of the replacement trans was 55560938.
The car never seemed like it had LSD thereafter.
BTW.....I have installed an LSD (AKA Torsen) in my FWD Calais, so I know what the unit looks like, and I know what it performes like.
My SS/SC "seemed" like it had the same feel after the replacement. But I was never sure.....
In other words, it didn't seem to try to spin the inside tire on a tight turn under power.
So now I have Stage 2 installed. Oodles of torque in 2nd gear under power. I now notice that the car spins the inside tire in a tight corner under power.......a lot!
The LSD should not allow that to happen. At all.
I'm back to wondering if the correct trans with LSD got installed.
I would appreciate it if a tech or GM employee could look up that part number and tell me if that indeed, it is the LSD trans.
I have checked the replacement trans, and have seen the LSD sticker on it. Means nothing if it's a re-manufactured trans from GM. The correct differential could have been left out.
I just might have to pull an axle and look through the carrier. A Torsen has no cross pin, a std trans does.
But before that, I'd like to have someone check the part number.
Any help out there?
I'll also post this on the other site.
