Which would be better for MY application?

like stated in my WTB thread, my spider gears are destroyed........what would be best in MY application......either a L/S or a Locker?

these are what i am looking at....

L/S:
http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

Locker:
http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

if anyone knows a place to get them cheaper, let me know.....Summit will price match....

that is what i was thinking......and i figure by the time i pay $50 + 40 shipping from eBay and rebuild kit for another $75 it would be worth it for the extra $50 to buy a new one from Summit....then i could guarantee it here by Monday or Tuesday at the latest.....

Your truck is a street truck so you do no want a locker unless you go for a selectable such as a Auburn E locker.

so you know how to setup gears? because that L/S is a full carrier replacement and will require you to resetup the gears when you install it...
