Post Chevy 10 Bolt carrier

Howdy Folks, I have a 1986 Chevrolet 4X4 with a 10 bolt differential. The gearing is 3.08 and it has a lot of slop in the spider gears and after pulling the cover to inspect I've noticed a great deal of slop (clearance)between the pinion shaft and the carrier. The spider gears also move up and down about .060 - .080 when the pinion is moved forward and backward. The ring and pinion seem fine without any noise.Broken locking screw also.
Questions: Is this carrier junk from the description or can I repair it with a set of spider gears, shims and shaft? Is this common with the locking differential/ Thanks Megmar

sounds like the friction plates in your locker are whooped. if indeed you have that type of locker. if you have an older eaton unit, i wouldnt wast my time with it. auburn makes a good replacement.
