They have them here, a little pricey but you'll only buy once!

Go to shop by department, then drivetrain/hard parts and you'll find it. The Soft Lock is their brute, they don't make the noisey lockers, this is the same industrial strength unit but much quieter. I don't believe you can even buy the old DL any more.

Should, as long as you get the correct series for your ratio and spline - you should ask about the axle diameter though. The guys there are really good guys and will give you all the info you need when you talk to them.

do you know of an easy way to check how many splines are on your axle? like just taking off the diff. cover, or is the only way to take the axles out?
thanks,
mike

Unless you can find the codes and specs for your particular car you'll have to pull the axles. Not a big deal but time consuming, remove the wheel, brake drum and shoes. Take the cover off, rap the axle inward until you can get at the C clip with a pencil magnet and pull it out (it's a loose fit), then slide the axle out. You may have to pry it an inch or so to get it moving.

When you put it back in, push it all the way in, install the C clip and make sure you pry it back to the outside to make it move inside the shrouded area that will keep it from falling off. That's pretty simplified but easy to do.
