Default Limited Slip question

I have a 2002 Ram 1500 QC 4x4. It's equipped with the 20" wheels and the 3:92 gear (with Limited Slip).. I notice that when I first get in the truck and when I backing and turning at the same time I feel something like little jerks. It's very light and I believe its must the limited slip. Would you all agree?

Thanks!

Could be, have you kept up with the rear end services? I want to say it's every 15-20k miles? There is also a special additive that goes with the fluid I believe, someone with more knowledge may chime in, or look at the service manual....if you haven't kept up with them the fluid may be no good.

I just bought the truck and I'm just noticing little things and may or may not be normal. The last owner changed the rear diff. oil around 25,000 miles ago. He said he put Lucas synthetic gear oil with the SL additive.

I've never had a lsd, so have little experience, but it sounds like its due for another change, especially if the guy was burning rubber alot. At least try checking the fluid level...and when you do try and pay attention to see if the fluid smells burnt, if so I'd change it. Remember the lsd is a clutch pack, it could be worn out as well, and the fluid is very important also. All that being said, hopefully someone with more knowledge on lsd will chime in.
