How Does the Anti-Spin Rear Differential Work in the Jeep Wrangler?

Jeep Rear Axle Differential in Cochrane, Alberta

A Jeep rear axle differential is designed to divide the power output to the wheels. It permits one wheel to rotate at a different speed than the opposite wheel without binding. Whenever your Jeep is turned, the outer wheels have to travel slightly more than the inner wheels. Without a differential, your Jeep would not be able to turn properly, leaving to only drive in straight lines. There are a variety of Jeep differential styles
available such as traditional open and locking differentials.

How Does the Anti-Spin Rear Differential Work in the Jeep Wrangler?

An anti-spin rear differential axle is designed to keep your Jeep securely on track, whether in the mountains, on winter roads, or in rough terrain. Our certified pre-owned and new inventory of Jeep Wranglers features this innovative technology. During periods of low traction, anti-spin rear differentials are designed to lock the rear wheels together to improve traction. The system is designed to enhance overall stability, safety, and manoeuvrability in conditions such as snow and ice. The system's primary components include a driving pinion, planet pinion, sun gear, crown wheel, two half-shafts, and a transmission shaft. Like traditional differentials, anti-spin differentials turn the wheels simultaneously when driving straight with no traction issues. The pinions do not move during this period, and the transmission shaft helps spin the crown wheel. When you make a turn, the pinions come into play and spin around the sun gears with help from the crown wheel. This action allows the crown wheel to spin the wheels at different speeds.
