My truck slips the rear tires when it's wet, (too much torque and too light in the rear). Since I live in Portland, Oregon, it's wet A LOT!!
I'd prefer to have traction so I'd like to have LSD's. I mentioned this too a mechanic friend of mine and he suggested getting the axels out of an Explorer, which should be easy to find at a You-Pull-It yard.
Vehicle: '97 Ranger XLT xtra cab 4.0L 4X4 stock, with 31 X 10.5 tires. 60k miles.
So my questions to the gurus are:
Will that work?
Do I need to look for specific years?
Will the disc brakes work without modifying anything?
Will they bolt on, or will I need to do any fab work?
Anything else I haven't thought of...?
