I am pulling together funds to swap my stock 3.55 gears for 4.56 in my 2006 Ram 1500. I am currently running 285/70R17 (32") but will likely be putting 285/75R17 (34") on this fall. I am likely going to put a truetrack in the rear at the same time. I have a few questions.
1) how are the stock traclock lsd units? I found a used one that is rebuilt for a really good price.
2) Does my truck have the Chrysler 8in IFS front housing?
3) what Limited Slip units are available for the front?
As far as I know, there is nothing available for the IFS as far as I know. Think I have heard you will have to replace the front carrier just to swap gears. Something about the carrier is welded to the ring gear I believe. Then if you do get the limited slip/locker in the front it would make steering a bitch as the axles would be locked together all the time unless you can find something like and electric or air locker.
Would almost be better to scrap the whole IFS and put a solid axle in it. But, that opens a whole new can of worms!
Just picking brains, mine's worn out!
