They are NOT the same. You are the one persisting with incorrect information. The only GM vehicles that had Trac-Lok were vehicles that had Dana axles because that design and name belongs to Dana as does the design and name Powr-Lok. Precision Gear is currently licensed to manufacture Powr-Lok limited slip differentials.

I guess you think the chevy 350 and the 351W are the same engine.

A limited slip is a posi though. terminology is just different. A traction loc is the same type of posi. Just different manufacter. Someone said a posi was a gear type lsd . What the hell is the point of a forum and stuff if you cant argue about info so people get the correct info? your right I think a Windsor is the same as a friggin 350 chevy

Almost. A Posi (brand name) is a limited slip. People just use the name "posi" when they mean limited slip. It's like saying "q-tip" when you're talking about an ear swab, or "Kleenex" when you need a tissue.


But for the most part, yeah--y'all are arguing semantics

I was just telling him because it said a posi-traction and he didnt know the "internals of one" so I was just trying to tell him. I know what the difference is.

Now that you mention it, TrueTrac and Torsen type gear lsd have been over looked.

four pages into this and I have a question. :)

Can you install an Aussie Locker in a 80-82 TTB 3rd member that uses a bolt-on retainer for the right side shaft? The Aussie locker instructions mention removing the c-clip and using a spring to hold it in (like a d-50 stubshaft conversion)

You can. In fact, I don't know why Ford didn't keep that method. Its more reliable than the spring method and not a PITA like the c-clip.

I'm running ox lockers in the front and rear and have had absolutely no problems with them. They are very heavy duty,well made and come with a very heavy duty diff cover. You just have to make sure when installing the cable to activate the locker that there are no really sharp bends,as this can cause the cable to bind.

What do I call a tissue pulled from a Kleenex box used to clean my ear? Is it a Kleen-Tip or a Q-nex?

The True Trac is a full carrier ls differential and not a lunch box type locker.
