Front and rear limited slip/locker..

Well I'm putting a locker/limited slip in the front and rear of my 1989 k 1500. Anyone know a company who offers them both? Does Power Trax? I've heard they're good. I don't want something that is locked all the time, i want it to lock and unlock when not needed. Soo.. any help would be appriciated.

Re: Front and rear limited slip/locker..

You can do a search, I brought up a similar topic about a month or so ago. As far as I've been told, there are no lockers for K1500 8.25" front diffs. There are supposedly some for the K2500/K3500 9.25" front diffs. All the replys that I recieved pretty much said to go with the Detroit if its going to be used hard. Apparently the Power Trax doesn't hold up very well under alot of abuse.

I agree with Griasev. Dertoit or ARB in rear. Nothing available for front.
