which locker for my dana 70 rear

I need some help finding a good locker for my rear end I got a dana 70 rear with 3.54 gears and wore out limited slip. what kind of lockers are available and which ones are easiest to work with I'm looking for a full posi unit since I don't do much highway driving so I can have better traction off road

anyone got any input ?

I would go with an ARB Air Locker, it gives you the benefit of an open diff on road, and the benefit of a locker off road.

dana 70 spool
you'd need to get some 35 spline shafts though

if your on a budget rebuild the powr-lok

arbs are nice, but a little spendy.

a posi is a limited slip. the term posi track is what gm named their built in house limited slip. gm built the posi for their gm axles. there is no comparison between the two, a limited slip is a completely differant animal than a locker.

detroit locker is the best name in the business for auto lockers

The ARB locks up when air pressure is applied to the locking device in the diff. It gives you the benefit of an open diff when it is off (fuel economy/tire wear). Alot of the guys in the offroad community whose off road rig is a daily driver swear by them.
