Lockers

Is this what you are asking about? Lockers? If so, Lock Rite lockers are probably the cheapest, and are available through any 4 wheel drive supplier.

Here is a good source for any type of lockers you want.

Powr-lok is a L/S made by Dana Spicer and will help me gain traction but not fully lock so I can break some thing. The only ones I can find are $500+, but only a few places even offer them and they are high.

Lockers

I would think you would get better performance with the Lock-rite, myself. I have seen both in action, and am not very impressed with the limited slip. The locker is cheaper, and is not noticeable on the rear at all. It will unload the pressure built up, so is not the same as a spool, or welding the spider gears together. The lincoln(welded) locker is not recommended, but some guys do it. A pretty cheap fix that will sooner or later tear up something. OOpps.....you were wanting it on the front. You will feel mechanical lockers in your steering, but still work better than LS.
One more suggestion, and then I will quit. Have you tried to find one on E-bay, sometimes you can get really great deals on there.

I guess I am lost, what is your point? I simply told him that a locker performed better, but if he still wanted the L/S, to see if he could find one on E-bay cheaper. He did not want to spend $500.00 for the L/S.

Good one Vector6, you already saved him $100.00. I should have looked at your link. Thanks for the input.
