Thats how the name Positraction is to limited slip differentials.

The easiest way to install one is to swap out the entire rear axle with another one that has it in there. Otherwise you risk an opportunity to learn all sorts of details about shimming and how it relates to ring and pinion gears. Takes an experienced hand to do it right and avoid whining or excessive wear from the gears.
I have to agree with you and for my boys 4x4 we got a front and rear axle set with posi rear and the 4.10's we wanted for $175 the set. but I keep reading about EZ lockers and power trax that install in the place of the spiders I believe and they say there is no disruption of the ring and pinion settings and no need to shim or change anything. What the thouht on these options. Ed ke6bnl
