for sure, they are WAY better than limited grip..... oh I mean limited slip, probably a good time for OH, bearings and seals too.

A locker will provide more traction and should last alot longer than a LS

More traction, agreed. But why will a locker last longer than a Torsen-type limited slip, which uses gears and not clutches?

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

For off road driving, lockers are awesome.
