Where can i find parts to rebuild limited slip?are there clutch packs in them like a posi?Friend of mine rebuilt my dana posi and tightened it up quite a bit.I talked to him yesterday and he said he could do the same with the limited slip rather then me spending the money on a traction loc for 28 splines.I have never had one apart so i have no idea what is inside of them.Anyone know or know where i can find an exploded view of one?btw its a 9"

Yeah Dennis. Same sh*t, less clutches.
You can shim the crap out of your posi unit and turn it into a jr. locker.

In the 9", there were two posi's or limited slips. There was the Equa-Lok and the Traction-Loc. The clutchs are not interchangable.

BTW. Posi is a GM term, not a Ford term.

The equa-lok has 5 ear tabs on the clutch/steel packs. The traction-loc has 4. The equa-lok isn't nearly as common these days.

Also, the term posi and traction-loc has the same meaning, there is no difference. And yeah, I agree with Larry, let the GM posers use the term posi. Plus using the term traction-loc makes you sound like you know your $h!t.

Correct me if I'm mistaken, but I thought i read in an earlier post that posi-traction engaged when the wheels began to slip, while traction-loc was always engaged until a sharp corner was taken disengaging the traction-loc. So posi and t-loc are actually different concepts, or no?

The "detroit lockers" and limited slips are different i know that much,i just didn't know there were two different types of limited slips, and until i talked to a friend of mine that you could actually tighten up the limited slip to act more like a "gm posi".I just want a "posi" until i upgrade the whole center and go to bigger axles

BTW thanks steve for getting my photo to work right

One has a wave spring to apply pressure and the other has little coil springs and plates.
