Eaton Posi

i had an auburn posi in my truck but it took a **** and a m looking at getting a new one. I was looking at eaton posi because they are rebuildable. anyone know if these are good and how often you have to rebuild them with everyday driving and the occasional burnout?

I have a Chevelle with a BB and I'm thinking about getting one to replace the stock diff in my 12-bolt. From what I understand it is a very good diff for a hot rod or muscle car. I believe they come standard with 400 lb springs and you can opt for 800 lbs if you are hardcore.

yah I agree the eaton posi's are excellent they are using a new type of clutch disk material that is suppose to be very very tough and the carrier is also apparently something like 30%o stronger than the factory units. you should be able to get a very good life span out of it even with fairly aggressive street driving. I certainly love mine.

I have a Detroit Truetrac in my truck, and I love it. It is a gear-type LSD, similar to a zexel-torsen. It is plenty strong and never needs to be rebuilt. It acts like a regular differential until you put some torque to it, then it locks up. You might want to check them out.
