AWD Front Differential Potential Issue

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, I was wrapping up a complete brake hard line and rubber brake hose swap out and I noticed something that seems contrary to my memory with regards to the front differential in our AWD trucks.  With the front end on jack stands and while putting the left front tire back on, I noticed that I could grab the front rotor and easily spin it.  Memory tells me that when in park,  neither the left or right front wheel can spin.  I walked around to the right front and the rotor is restrained by the differential/transfer case/transmission and rotates on a minute amount before it stops.  I thought that both sides should be unable to rotate when in park, at least per my memory.  Do I have an issue or is my memory wrong and all is well?  Thanks!
