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.

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.
