just go to a performance site like truckperformance.com and look up auburn limited slip units and u can get one for a few hundred and u can have someone install it for u for a nother few hundred. overall ur prob lookin at 500 or 600 bucks. and the auburn is supposed to be a great unit and much stronger than a stock one.

I already have an oem unit, got it on ebay for 190 bucks compared to the auburn I almost got which was 290 something. If I had the money I would have gone for that. I found someone to help install it already and was just looking for some information for other upgrades in the diff since i'm going to be taking it apart. someone else recommended new bearing for the unit.

FYI got it from gearsareus.com

$200 for OEM LSD for 9.25 2000-2002.

4 Hours of labor for 1 guy that KNOWS what he is doing. Requires removing the rear wheels, pulling out the axles, and prepping the new LSD and installation into the rear end.

In other words, take it to a ring and pinion shop that specializes in rear ends ONLY. Dealership wants $800 for parts alone, and many "off road" shops won't carry OEM because the mark up sucks.

I found the greasiest, sleaziest rear end shop I could find, and they did a GREAT job for small change. Unless you have done rear ends before, don't touch a bolt on your truck. You can screw it up royally if your poking around without a clue.

A good shop will warranty their work, and will check tire circumfrence to make sure you aren't tearing up the new LSD. They will install new wheel bearings and gaskets, ect ect. Read up all the instructions you can find on the net, and just when you think you know how to do it yourself, take it to someone else and use that knowledge to make sure they aren't doing a bad job.
