Re: Whats the best limited slip differential?

When I was looking into a LSD it was between the auburn and truetrac but I ended up getting a Detroit Locker and I don't have any regrets.

Re: Whats the best limited slip differential?

I just went through this with a guy on my Golf Cart forum. Ford uses a viscous style LSD. Chevy uses the Auburn (LD), it is a Locking Differential with clogs instead of relying on plates and fluid to engage like the Ford LSD. My brother in law got a Detroit Lock, Auburn doesn't make a rear end for the Ford's from what every one has told us. He loves the DL and that is my next install before winter and after my new tires.

The detroit truetrac has rave reviews. Helical gears instead of clutch plates and nothing to really wear out. 4wheel parts has all their drivetrain stuff on sale for 10% off with free shipping. It's a heckuva deal for the money.

I just witnessed a chevy with a locking diff. it made noises I freaked out then I thought about it and my buddy said it. That thing has a locking diff. Funny thing is the chevy owner thought something was wrong with the truck .

Just to let everyone know Auburn does make a LSD for our trucks and it is a nice unit and doesn't use clutches it uses a cone type deal and will last alot longer than a clutch type LSD.

Where can it be bought? I was told by Auburn themselves they do NOT have one for the F series.

Re: Whats the best limited slip differential?

Stay away from 4wheelparts. I orderd a Trutrac from them last weekend and was told they would be instock by Tuesday and my unit would ship by Wednesday.
I called on wed. to get a tracking number only to be told that they don't have any to ship and they don't know when they will have them instock again. Since they had already billed my credit card I told them there was no way they were not going to give me a shipping date. The kid tells me to call Eaton myself to find out when they will be shipped. So I called and was told they won't ship until Sept 13th at the earliest.
I called 4wheelparts back and told them I want my money back!
Called Randys R&P and it will be here next week.
It cost about $130 more but I got bearings and races with it, and I will gladly pay a little extra for good service
