Alot of people will say Detroit TrueTrac for good all around performance and daily driver. I have the same issue as you at times, but when I bite the bullet I will go for a Detroit full locker.

Depending on the condition of the clutches, you could try to resurrect it with an oil change maybe....

Does it have a lot of miles on it?

Here's why so many LS diffs aren't doing their job, Ford puts So Much "Friction Modifier" in the fluid that the clutches slip too much. I think they do this to make Sure nobody complains about any chatter noise and to keep their warranty replacements down (replacement fluids do the same thing)

So, if the frictions still have some "meat" on them, you can try changing the oil to one without the friction additive and add, a little at a time, the modifier separately until the chatter just goes away.

It might be too late on a hi miles unit, or you could replace the frictions (clutches) and start off with the right combination of fluid/modifier. I don't think there IS an, inexpensive, locker and really, a locker in the rear it sometimes tough to put-up with......
