[V8] Subject: Scrubbing wheel on tight turns.

I had this happen recently after installing new struts, rotating tires
and realignment.   The wheels were really scrubbing bad at slow speeds
at full lock, parking lot stuff.  I thought for sure the monkey lads had
screwed up something during rotation and alignment and took it back to
the shop. They confirmed all the numbers were good.    I then pulled and
inspected all ABS sensors.  Found one covered with "gunk". Cleaned and
replaced all sensors and the diffs no longer were locking up at slow

Bet the ABS sensors are mis-aligned/bad causing the rear diff to
lock.....this can also be caused by tires that are out of size (dia.)
with each  other.
I had this issue with my first V8- solved it by replacing one abs
sensor and re-positioning the other in the front. Wasn't the rear
sensors,  though that seemed kinda funny at the time.
