The last time I change my rear diff oil , my spider gear had some og thr end of the teeth broken.....

I was looking at rock auto to get some but they only have the one for the open diff, mine is an 05 with limited slip.

what are my option , can I put a locker for a resonable price and would it involve a lot more work than just changing the spider gears ?

What you guys have done ??

You can put a locker in(IE ARB airlocker or Detroit locker) and even put in the Detroit Truetrac(gear based LSD) but it is much more involved than replacing a spider gear.

New bearings should be installed and seals(master install kit,new ring gear bolts needed also) and you will need a very good press for the bearings,good torque wrench's,special bearing preload tool for the 8.25,and dial indicators.Not a noob friendly job by anymeans.
