Stock limited slip rebuild...

Well I couldn't find a drive-train section so move this if needed...

My tires are beginning to get low now and I am felling a desire for wear-like-iron highway tires after having my A/T's. I do need to use my truck off pavement often enough, so here is my situation:

Many on here are pushing the Tru-Trac Limited Slip carrier as their weapon of choice. Being very budget minded, and being I already have a L/S, I have heard you can rebuild the stock Unit to a stronger/tighter spec. Does anyone have any more information on this? Thanks Powerstroke-Gods!

I had a locker in my last chevy that actually locked. If I was going to do anything to improve the LS on this Ford it would first be to replace the diff fluid without the LS additive, and then it would be a locking diff upgrade. I don't care if it is an air locker, electric locker, or ratchet style so long as the wheels lock. That was a great deal.

The link above doesn't tell us how to rebuild, just what parts to get. Anyone else done this?

Thanks

The Ford LS get a bad wrap because they don't work the way they come from Ford and the reason being is Ford puts way to much friction modifier in the fluid. They call for 8 oz, when I changed my fluid I put 3 oz in and did some tight figure eights, if you have chatter in the rear end you need to add 1 more oz and do it again, do this until the chatter stops. The LS works great now. I have done this to about 6 different PSD's and 5oz was the most any of them took. Most were good with 3-4oz, this is why I never recommend fluid that has the modifier already in it like amsoil.

oOo I didn't know that. Do you know of any synthetics that don't come with modifier?
