    Your lockright would transfer into the new carrier. Axle spline count is the only thing that matters and all Chevys have 35 spline inners.

    If you're buying a new carrier I'd just go with a Detroit though. I have a lock-right now but when if I ever change gears, I'm going with a Detroit.

    I had a lockrite when I ran 3.73's (!). I still have it now with the 5.13's. If I had to do it all over again.....

    You have to get a new carrrier anyway. The detroit comes with a new carrier. It will cost some more bones but it might be worth it. I'm waiting to break my front lock rite.

    Yeah, It should get you by for some time. Mine has held up well to some heavy abuse over the years. I know BadDog has busted his though. He is very hard on parts though.
