hey guys so this last year i blew up my limited slip clutch style unit. Looking for what brand or maybe full unit you guys would recommend, think i will be going with a set of aftermarket axles as well any input would be great thanks guys!

so welded one up broke an axle ran a spool broke an axle. they were stock axles so im sure its a completely different story didnt want to really want to try the spool with aftermarket axles break one in the heat and be screwed for the main. Unless im totally doubting the strength of after market axles. we also have a huge track and run in mud as well.
There’s been a family of strictly Mopar guys run out here for years and years, all they ever ran was limited slip 8-3/4’s. Very, very few broken axles.....I’ve ran them many times myself and have never broken an axle in a limited slip. The best IMO is the clutch style 8-3/4 but I’ve also ran the aftermarket Auburn with good results.
There’s a big market for the 8-3/4 limited slips if you’re worried about value. If you’re going aftermarket axles just step up to a 35 spline and get a full spool. They’ll still break, but not near as easily.

see and i ran mine for 5 years and never broke an axle i busted one side of the clutch packs, then blew it up. but thats why i was curious i dont mind spending the money for a good limited slip at all or axles. do you think i would be better off with a limited slip and after market axles or a 35 spline spool with after market axles?
If you’ve got another clutch style limited slip you could sell it on eBay or a Mopar enthusiast site and make a big dent in a 35 spline upgrade.
Personally, I’d go with a 35 spline full spool setup. The nice thing about an 8-3/4” is that you don’t need to change housing ends to run 35 spline axles. If you go that route just make dang sure you don’t buy the piece of junk non-adjustable green bearings. Go with the tapered bearing.
I myself would just get a open one wheel wonder carrier,weld it up so ya got posi.The factory mopar suregrip center sections bring good money at swap meets or ebay.Now if ya plan on swapping gears just buy a spool.If your on a budget or rules require factory axles,find you a 67-73 imperial rearend,the axles are better factory than the other 8 3/4 rearends plus have 5 on 5 bolt pattern,same as GM...JMO
