    it's a stock limited slip set up that is only rated for 31's tires, and when they do break the parts that break aren't available to purchase,LOL I guess they are better then nothing but they don't hold up.

    <font color=blue>They make good paperweights. I have a broken one in my 14 bolt right now. As soon as I get ring gear bolts, my Detroit is going in. I'm only running a mild 350 and 36s and it still broke.

    I posted a big thing on how they work a while back. A search should find it.

    I just sold a carrier to a guy who blew his Gov-Loc...get this: IN HIS DRIVEWAY [​IMG]

    Over 600 posts and still a "pavment pounder"...

    My gov lock blew in front of my buddies house. He jumped in, I took of because we were late for class, and pow. Good bye gov lock. That was on 32's with a stock 350.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.

    The gov lock in my 10-bolt rear went the first time I went wheeling after I bought the truck.

    And I'm only running 31s! ;-)

    Hey biggray, I hope you also have an open carrier. You can only put the detroit in a 4 pin open carrier, it will not fit the 3 pin gov loc carrier.

    I've got a gov-lock in my 12 bolt rear, it has stood up to on and off road clutch dumping with 3:42 ratio and 35" BFG Mud TA's (I know, I know) and has not broke yet. I still plan on swapping a 14ff in though.
