Ford TrakLock

Hey guys, looking around for a limited slip, I really wanted the torsen like the FX4, but this looks real cheap. Not really sure what goes into a rebuild... But I'm just wondering if this is worth it?

I never had a problem with mine...worked great all the way until I upgraded. Mine came stock in my car obviously.

Thats an okay deal, depends on how much you get the rebuild kit for. I got mine off ebay.

Rebuilding it is very easy, just you may want a extra couple clutches to really pack that sucker tight. I've had a couple times i only get one tire spinning with mine when it's loaded down off-road. But it's hard to ask from more out of a LSD

The torsen is gear driven and the trac lok is clutch driven. The torsen will never need a rebuild like the trac lok. The torsen costs much more, will only fit a 31 spline, and seems to have a problem grenading.
