    I put a limited slip diff in my 88 c1500, its got a 3/5 drop with 20's. when i did a burnout in it, both wheels spin but only the left tire swill produce smoke? so im just guessing the one wheel is getting a little more power than the other? any advice so i can get equal power?

    put LIGHT pressure on the brake pedal? I'm grasping at straws here because I really don't know. However, I've seen that mentioned before in similar threads/

    Are you brake-standing? if so, one brake is probably grabbing harder than the other. If you replace all the internals of both rear brakes you should be able roast both of em

    ^ X2. Word of warning though, don't make a habit out of long brake stand burnouts. I cracked both drums once on my red truck getting a little too rowdy. You will break stuff.

    What kind of LSD you installed might help. New/used, clutch/cone type, g80?

    You can burn up a clutch or cone type repeatedly power braking it.
