    Without thread jacking too much, I have a 2003 4x4 Silverado, but I have a open diff in the rear...what are my options to get that changed to at least a positrac/limited slip set-up?

    I'm surprised you dont have a Gov lock in that... If you just want a limited slip you will get a whole new carrier that you will need to switch the ring gear over onto. Refer back to the beginning of this thread and to my links. I hope I can sway you to look into auto lockers.

    I had an Aussie Locker in my Jeep and it worked great. The only thing you will notice is that it ratchets around turns. That is normal, it is just the locker "unloading" so you do not chirp the tires. Lockers like this are known as "lunchbox lockers" because, well, they can fit in a lunchbox. All they do is replace the spider gears in your diff. A lunchbox locker goes for around 200-300 bucks and are relatively easy to install. Your choices for this are Aussie locker, Powertrax no-slip or lockright, Yukon spartan locker, and detroit EZ locker.

    However, if you want to go a little more into strength and comfort than a Detroit full case locker would be your best bet. They replace the whole carrier and spider gears in the diff. But, they cost around 500 bucks. They are much more manageable on the street.
