    What kind of factory locker would come in the rear D60 of a 1985 W300? Would it be like a govlock or a limited slip? Also what would you think it would be worth? I'm needing one for my Dodge D60 front.

    I am gonna vote trac loc or power loc and they are both clutch type limited slips. They are fairly common and inexpensive on Ebay.

    I've been thinking more about it and I don't think it would work anyway. Guy says it had 4.10 and was a ratchet style. I'm running 5.13s so I don't think the carrier will work. I really don't know.


    Is there a carrier break?

    :rolleyes: Yeah, I guess I goofed. Thats what I get for taking the word of the guy I bought the axle from. He said it was 30 spline inners. I should have it in hand this week to pull apart and see for myself. Oh well, I'm sure I can find something to do with it.:wink1: It was cheap enough.

    i seem to remember on of the 4x rags finding a set of powerlock 35 spline "gears" (maybe from a d70 powerloc) to replace the 30s when they went to 35s. might be worth looking into.

    Yeah thats why I didn't second guess him. I'd heard of powerlocks in the fronts of D60s. I guess thats one way of doing it.

    You can buy new Spicer 35spline side gears for it, alittle pricey I think they were $40.00 each when I converted mine.
