maybe, but still, its the 28 spline, so would it be able to handle the torque from the diesel?

If it was a high speed highway runner, why would a locker be needed? or wanted?

Sounds like it came our of a mustang or a crown vic more then likely. The fox's and sn95's stock ran gears like that. My old 96 gt had a 3.08.
