Differentials are a vital component of any vehicle but are often overlooked. The differential is part of the components responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels. Differentials can be found in both front and rear-wheel drive vehicles. They allow the wheels to rotate at different speeds, which is necessary when turning corners. Without a differential, the inside wheel would have to spin slower than the outside wheel, which would cause the vehicle to lose traction.
Here are some things to consider as you shop.
What Type of Differential Does Your Car Need?
The type of differential your vehicle needs depends on the make and model. Differentials are available in open, limited slip, and locking configurations. Open differentials are the most common, but they may have some drawbacks regarding performance. Limited slip and locking differentials provide additional traction and stability in slippery conditions. Different models of the Ford Bronco Sport have different differential types, so be sure to find out which type your vehicle has.
Please take note of the gear ratio of your vehicle's differential because it's also important. This determines how much power is transferred from the engine to the wheels. The higher the gear ratios transfer more power. On the other hand, the lower ratios offer better fuel economy but can cause a decrease in performance.
Installation & Differential Size
Differentials come in different sizes and are available for both front- and rear-wheel drive vehicles. You should also consider the type of installation you need. Some differentials require professional installation, while others are designed to be DIY jobs. Be sure to read up on all the instructions before attempting a DIY installation.
