    A cheap replacement for the govlock, is Auburn Limited Slip, or
    possibly a Lock-Right if they make it for a govlock carrier, if not
    an open carrier will not break the bank. You can get them at any good
    auto parts store, but to save a $$$$$$$$ mail order or the intrenet.
    good luck
