Goerend has a heavy duty bellville spring kit Goerend Heavy Duty Belleville Spring Washer Kit Dodge Diesel. You should call them up to see if that will fix your issue
I meant rear and front clutch retainer. See pic.I haven't seen any aftermarket rear drums. I was thinking of going with the billet front drum but was talked out of it by my builder. He said he can fit more clutches in the 48re front drum(8) and has had less issues with the stock than the billet. He said the billet is possibly only needed if you're going to be spinning ~5k rpm or more because if the sprag fails the drum will spin at 2.2x the engine rpm. So the stock drums were tested by TCS to fail around 14k rpm so it will fail at ~6363rpm. I asked about doing the bolt in sprag as well but he has only seen the sprag failure if someone did a neutral drop however if you do the bolt in sprag and the sprag happens to fail still then the case will be ruined as well.
Most important make sure the fluid is full and drive it hard the first 1k-1500 miles to break in the frictions and bands, change the filter. You can reuse the drained fluid except do the last quart but I elected to just put new in.
Yes, once I roll out in 1st, it's locked. Im running bbi 1.5 injectors, so I'm about 700 - 800 h.p. so...not too high h.p. it will spin all 4 wheels for a second or 2.You do 1-2 locked shifts?
