Default need help, rearend is bineding?

hello,
i was wondering if there is someone out there that can help me with this problem. i have a 2006 ram 1500 5.7 hemi with a 3.92 limited slip rearend. when i first bought my truck i used to get this bineding in the rearend whenever i took off around a corner. well the dealer changed the fluids in rearend and it went away. a year later and 16,000 miles later i started to get this bineding in the rearend whenever i come to a stop and go straight. it is really noticeable when i get off the highway exit ramp and come to a stop and then go you really feel it. what could be going on that would cause the bineding in the rearend when driving straight ?

Are you 100% sure limited slip additive was put in when the fluid was changed? You could try changing the fluid again and adding 4 ounces of LSD additive and driving it for a couple of days and seeing if it goes away. If not, the rear end will have to come apart.

IF youre sure it's already in there, adding more likely won't help.

its hard to describe but what it sounds like is it feels like as though you had your e break on and you felt that restriction when taking off and you can feel the bineding through the truck.

What is the service interval for the LSD additive? 16K miles seems like a lot and it may be time to add some.
