    Well, what are the advantages and prices? Also, give your opinions on disadvantages, if any. I need to make up my mind.

    Gearless locker is not a real locker, it's a limited slip, and limited in strength from what I have seen. Trac Lok is Spicer's cheapo limited slip and is not made for GM axles, unless you have a Dana front.

    Lock Right(not trac right) is a good little locker for the money. I have been running them without breakage for a while now. They are about 250 bucks and easy to install. If you can change a clutch, you can install a Lock Right.
    They have never failed to give me maxiumum traction.
