    2nd post

    I just bought a 2006 sti and when I put the dccd in lock position it's hard to turn is this normal. I'm assuming its because all tires are locked in there for its harder to turn. I no it's not for everyday use but I still wanted to make sure everything is working correctly. Thanks. O ya and my names Shane from eugene or. Any other locals around me?

    Yep, its normal.

    The differential is locked to provide a 50/50 power split, thus putting equal amounts of power to all wheels. So when you're turning, the inner wheels are going to want to spin faster than the outer wheels, but can't. So you're going to feel some resistance and hear some clunking.

    DCCD is one of the reasons why I bought an STI, twice. Makes winter/snow driving so nice.

    Yes. You are literally locking your front and rear axles in tandem. You should NOT be using the DCCD in locked position on dry pavement for prolonged periods of driving. Doing so may result in permanent differential failure.
