Post Power Lok or Auburn?

I have a Dana 44 rearend that I plan to install on my 80 CJ-5. Both Auburn and Power Lok limited slips are available for the 44. Which unit is better? I don't need a locker.

Don't forget the Detroit Ture Trac LSD. It has no clutches to wear out. <a href="http://www.4x4review.com/products/drive_train/truetrac.asp" target="_blank">Detroit TrueTrac LSD</a>

I understand the Tru Trac is only warranted for use with 32-inch tires maximum. I know that when used within it's limitations, it performs excellently. I plan to use 33" tires and understand that the Power Lok and Auburn are both robust units. I'm trying to get a feel for which is more effective and the advantages or disadvantages of either. I don't want the harshness of a locker. I've had my share of that. Thanks for your input.

I can't tell you much about the Auburn, but I am a firm believer in the Powr Lok LS. They work well,are SUPER strong,and are inexpensive to rebuild.I've run one in my 27A front axle for 10 years and never had a problem.

I agree on the PowerLok both for strength and ease of rebuild (if ever needed). I understand that Reider Racing handles them since Precision Gear started making them about 10 years ago. Dana doesn't make them for the 44 or 60 anymore. Remember that the model 44 has case breaks (3.73 and less) and (3.92 and greater) .

Nobody said it was going to be Easy!
