I ordered the 110# springs to keep my locker from unlocking...Will put them in the winter

We are all traditionalist here and I personally still prefer the Power lock for street and strip drag racing but if you are going autocrossing a helical differential is the only way to go.

The helical style is better in theory... but the 8.75 versions have had quality problems. Why I suggested the clutch type (which I run).
