locating parts supplier?

I'm having a devil of a time finding a supplier that stocks the parts for my axle..
can anyone make some suggestions for me? and before you say it.. a different axle is simply outside of my budget right now i would consider a posi-trax unit if I had a 3-series open carrier at my disposal, and I drive this on the street, so a spool is out of the question.

I need to rebuilt the posi clutch pack...

I *believe* it's an 8.2" (based on the size of the pinion yoke nut)

I know it's a 10-bolt. factory axle to a 70-72 monte carlo
(gm a-body 4-link housing)

with 3.55 gears.

I think I managed to do a burn out or three at the track with one of my rear brakes grabbing, so naturally, the clutches didn't last long.

Tom's Differentials, Randy's Ring & Pinion, Home and several others.

If you have the Eaton Posi then it takes the same clutches as the 12 bolt Eaton Posi. If you have an Auburn then it's scrap metal. You can not rebuild an Auburn. When they quit working you take them out and toss them in the scrap metal pile and buy a good differential like the Eaton Posi.

Doing water burnouts will ruin a new set of clutches just like it did your old set. It has nothing to do with the brakes, it's just what happens when doing water burnouts with a clutch type differential. If you drag race a lot and do a lot of water burnouts then either be willing to replace the clutches often or get a locker.
