How does ECLRD help keep you safe while driving?



An electronically controlled locking rear differential is a type of automotive differential that uses electronic sensors, solenoids, and other components to vary the amount of torque delivered to each wheel.

When equipped with this system, the vehicle will automatically adjust the amount of power sent to each wheel, allowing for better control and handling of the vehicle in varying road conditions.

This system also provides improved traction and handling in low traction situations, as the system can adjust the power distribution to provide better grip for the tires. This system is typically used in all-wheel drive vehicles, although it can also be used in rear-wheel drive vehicles.
