    Front wheels don't spin as easily as the rears

    Just like the title says, my front wheels don't spin as easily as the rears. The rear continue to spin for a second after I turn them, the front stops almost as soon as I let go. I still have the factory grease/fluid in the diffs. Is this normal?

    Unless you have a center diff, I don't think it should happen. Maybe there's some type of binding in the drivetrain. Check to see if anything is damaged or bound up.

    It's only when I spin just the wheels by hand. The center driveshaft isn't spinning, so the slipper isn't involved. When I use the throttle all 4 wheels stop at the same time.

    Perfectly normal. Front diff has 30k fluid and the rear is just greased.
