Limited 3.55 diff rebuild kit?

I been told my limited rear end may be wore out and that the limited slip diff could be rebuilt to stiffen up the gears and give me full use of the limited rear. But I'm having a hard time finding a kit for limited slip 3.55 sterling 10.5 rear. Could anybody help me out? Thanks in advance.

Would this kit stiffen my limited diff?

If I was you... I would go with a Detroit E-Locker or just go with a Detroit Truetrac. The OEM parts are notorious for wearing out. Here is a link to what I am talking about and they have the 10.5 Sterling covered.

Jerzyperson, I do not think the kit you linked will do anything for the factory limited slip. Doesn't the factory limited slip have friction disks that need to be replaced to tighten up a worn limited slip? I have done them before on smaller rigs and like Lilfarmboy said, the factory stuff doesn't really last all that long.

If you want to go the OEM route, I think this is what you need:

Yukon Carbon Clutch kit with 14 Plates for 10.25" and 10.5" Ford posi, Eaton style. - YPKF10.25-PC-14

From my experience Ford limited slip should be renamed to Ford unlimited slip I don't know if cost is the issue but you could have an E-Locker for around $700 and engage it when you need it such as mud, snow, boat ramps, etc... The Truetrac is basically a limited slip but its soooooo much better than the factory stuff and its about half the cost of the E-locker I believe. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions send me a PM.
