now I know this a dumb question but the "electronic locking rear diff." works the same as a posi correct?

are you talking about the nismo locking rear diff? because no that is not posi, that is a locked rear end.

i think some of the LE's have what nissan calls a electronic locking rear diff or something close to that, and yes thats just a posi system. if i remember correctly. pleaes correct me if im wrong.

Positraction will apply power to both wheels under torque (normally when driving straight ahead), however, will allow one tire (inside) to turn at a different rate than the other tire (outside) while turning corners in normal driving conditions. The locker essentially locks both sides of the rear diff as one, so turning with the rear diff locked would cause the inside tire to hop (or spin depending on the surface) when taking a tight turn because both tires will turn at the same rate. Hope this helps...

yup go for a shortened dana 44 or a 60. and i ment a dana 44 he first post not a dana 40

fyi i bought a old 77 jeep for 200 bucks. took the 2 axles off it, parted out the jeep and made my money back. the axles were free, plus i made money.

so getting your rear end can be cheap. its rebuilding it, choosing the gearing, shortening that can run up your bill a little bit, its not going to be too horribly bad but its not going to be dirt cheap. but i think it will be well worth it.

just to say yeah i have a real dana 44 under my truck. would be enough for me lol.
