Welcome to DF ! Glad to have you in a duramax from the darkside (cummins) ! As far as your tire grabbing, it sounds as though your locker is sticking. That will make the tires grab more in the turns. My 2008 did this when it was about a year old. Barked the tires backing up and turning and on garage concrete when it was wet. Turned out my rear end was bad and I put a new one in. Fixed the problem.

This weekend I pulled the inspection plate and looked for metal with a magnet nothing big, I think someone has already worked on it.Have a mech'ic that doesn't turn dollar sign on when I come in. He suggested the fiction modifier. I was hoping someone may have tried the modifier in the past. Thanks for answering really appreciate it
