    I am going to put an Aburn limited slip in the front of my blazer and wanted to know if it was something that could be done at home by an average shade tree mechanic. I have heard that it was possible since you don't have to reset the pinion. Please if anyone has installed on let me know. I have one inthe rear and love it, I had it installed when I had my gears done and I love it.

    Since the Auburn replaces your existing differential case, there will still be a lot of critical adjustments to make. Pinion depth is only one part of the job. You'll still need to get the tooth engagement pattern right.
