    When i back out of my driveway in reverse and turn wheel to go forward. It almost feels like a slight case of 4wd crab walk but i have a 2wd. Any ideas on what this is? I have a '08 4 door 2wd sport

    Do you mean you press on the gas and the truck doesn't do much then it jumps forward. Beacuse that is just a time delay for the Auto tranny to wake up.

    FYI don't google image search "crab walk" at work, lol :D

    I would check and/or change your diff fluid and add the proper amount of friction modifier.

    Most likely issue is the difff fluid in ur lsd diff does not have enough friction modifier... most peolple recommend not putting synthetic fluids In it allows this kind of behavior

    This is kind of a stupid question because I don't know if one is available in a 2WD model but do you have a rear locker? Could be the problem.
