Yeah, be real good for city driving. Much easier on the drivetrain. I had an Auburn in mine. I think parts alone front and rear Motive gears with deluxe install kits and the Auburn diff was $1300.

How did you like the auburn? Was it a true locker? And the motives, how are those?

I didn't have a problem with any of it. The auburn was a posi-trac unit. At the time I don't think Auburn offered a locker. I mainly got it for name brand performance and reviews for the blower, gears, aluminum driveshaft, etc. I just tried to eliminate weak points in the drivetrain.

[MENTION=92839]MyFX4Project[/MENTION] I'm soaking those timing cover bolts in some oil and cleaning them up and I will send them out. Did you need the ones with the ground isolators as well?
