Cheapest solution would probably just be to get a full-carrier locker like a Detroit. Whatever you do, short of replacing the entire axle, you're going to have to reset the gears so might as well get the stronger locker while you're at it.

87 YJ, rebuilt 4.0, dana 30 w/ aussie locker, 8.8 rear end with lsd, 34x10.50 bias swampers, warn 8274, some fancy stuff, some crappy stuff ROLLED, REPAIRS IN PROGRESS

sometimes you can get used carriers at a diff shop for around $40. if $ isnt an issue then i agree with the detroit. ive heard aussies are a pain to put in a 8.8 anyway.

Some where iI have read about putting better springs and clutches in an 8.8 lsd to make them work better. That might ne a cheaper solution for you. The article I read was on a mustang site. So this might give you something to think about and search out. I would do the search myself but right now the connection I have is just able to get on here.

A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.
