Default Front diff locks

97 dodge ram my front diff locks up in reverse. I even pulled the front shaft out so the transfer case is not even hooked up to the front diff.However still when I go in reverse my left front tires locks up. When i go forward no problems at all.Im stumped anyone ever experienced this. And yes I am in 2wd high lol.

Are you sure theres not something going on in that brake . Thats what I'd be looking at . Make sure you complete your profile by going to the User Cp at the top of the page . Then afterwards stop by the newbie section and introduce yourself .

I'm guessing broken pinion teeth. It will mesh smoothly going forward, but bind in reverse. Pull the front diff cover and take look at the gears.
