to change to a limited slip you will have to replace the complete carrier assy. Auburn gear and several others make these for your application.I suggest lock right or detroit easy locker, i think they offer a kit for your carrier.Very easy to install but it will make it a true posi when the throttle is applied. Unless they have changed their design the function and reliability are great. I have used both in hybrid jeeps

I aggree if your going to swap out the carrier of the diff. Might as well go with a locker or a tru trac or something along that lines. Don't waste the money for a limited slip.

I am going to say thet he was talking of swaping in a stock, clutch style center.
I agree with you the trutrac is the best way to do it with out doing an air or electric locker.
Ill be doing it to my Lightning and my F250
