    HHmmm.........you better call them up. It says 8.875 for some reason. Maybe that isn't the right one.

    Have you looked at Powertrax? It's the same thing. You would need 1615 if you went that direction.

    Yeah i did you al the powertrax and i was actually able to figure out which one i needed with it. Aussie just seems more confusing to me, but i did call, and they didnt give me an answer, so i was hoping someone here could. The think with powertrax is they are so much more expensive especially if you go with the no-slip.

    Yeah, the Aussie site kind of sucks. I don't know what to tell you. It sounds like they don't even know if they make one.

    Update: i think i have decided to go with the detroit tru-trac limited slip because 1. i know which one will fit 2. It seems to give you the best of both worlds because it is supposed to help alot on snow and nearly invisible on street, but it is supposed to give you close to lock up. I have heard it is around 60-40, but with a few clicks of the e-brake it is supposed to act like a locker. I think that this will be my option and hopefully will get it in a month or so. I had to spend the money i was goin to use to buy the ls on a plate bumper, but i cant complain it is awesome! Good luck to anyone who is still looking for an aussie im pretty sure that the one that works for the 4 runner will work but im not sure.

    Fwiw, when I called Aussie, they told me that they don't make a locker for an 8in, 30 spline, 2 pinion differential. Decided to go with No Slip because I know for certain it'll fit and because it's supposed to be super quiet on road.
