Default converting limited to posi

I heard you can change out the gears in a limited slip rear end and replace with or upgrade to posi without removing the housing.

Any thoughts?

A "POSI" IS a limited slip. Positraction was just the name given to it.

Default Wrong?

I may have the names wrong then I have a stock rear end in the monte carlo circle track car and the rules changed so we can have posi now.


Thanks for the help.

So if you are looking for a stock limited slip..look in all the Camaro's, Trans-Am's ect. of the era to find a used one. They are not too hard to find.

If it is a dirt track only car you can just weld the spider gears making it act like a spool.. Not the best idea but it will work. But yes you can swap the carier and gears out without removing the housing. It isn't just a bolt in thing though you have to know how to set the rearend up
