If you have had this issue since new, drain the differential lube and refill with the AC friction modified lube. If it is acting like a locked rear the clutch pack sounds like it is dry. Try and heat the lube to thin it out and refill the differential. Jack the rear end up and see if you can get either wheel to free wheel. I'd recommend over filling the rear at this point, rotate the wheels by hand and try and keep the fluid warm (I bought a el cheapo hairdryer for this). It is surprising the amount of heat you can generate with the dryer. Amsoil, and several others make a gear lube with a friction modifier. I have over 7,000 miles on my Turf Saver! The only thing I've done is change the lube 3-4 times a year! I have a locked rear in mine now, but plan on putting the Turf Saver back in! I pulled it for snow plowing. I'd try this before ordering any parts! Good Luck!
