Simple Differential Question

I was wondering if a Ford open diff in an 8.8 rear can be swapped for a Ford Trac-Lok without having to change the carrier. It seems in the shop manual that the only difference is the s spring and the friction plates. I'm gonna try my local Blue Oval but anyones input is greatly appreciated.

Re: Simple Differential Question

You do have to change the carrier, the trak-lok diff is differant to hold the clutch plates
