Auburn Gear Inc.

For 40+ years, Auburn Gear Inc. has been manufacturing performance differentials for the automotive and light truck markets. Our unique and robust cone-clutch mechanism is the cornerstone of our design. This clutch style outperforms other limited slip designs. In 2003, Auburn Gear introduced the ECTED-Locker. ECTED stands for Electronically Controlled Traction Enhancing Differentials. This new performance differential is a selectable limited slip or locking differential. All Auburn Gear differential products are made in the Good-Old-USA.

  • Auburn Gear High Performance Limited Slip Differentials

    The highly efficient torque transfer is achieved via cone clutches coupled to beveled side gears. As torque is transmitted through the differential side gears to the axle shafts, the side gear separating forces and spring pre-load firmly seat the cones into the differential case. The cone design, along with the applied force, determines the torque transfer capability of the differential. All Auburn Gear differentials require a high quality non-synthetic 80W90 GL-5 gear oil. Treat the oil with Auburn Gear, GM, or Ford additive. 3 ounces of additive per 1 quart of oil. A 6 oz. bottle of additive comes with each Auburn unit.

  • Auburn Gear Pro Series Limited Slip Differentials

    You can't lose with either unit, but for that extra performance edge the Pro Series Differential provides the higher bias design to put you over the top and into the winner's circle. All Auburn Gear differentials require a high-quality non-synthetic 80W90 GL-5 gear oil. Treat the oil with Auburn Gear, GM, or Ford additive. 3 ounces of additive per 1 quart of oil. A 6 oz. bottle of additive comes with each Auburn unit.

  • Auburn Gear ECTED - Locker

    ECTED stands for Electronically Controlled Traction Enhancing Differentials (Pronounced "ek-ted"). It is a revolutionary product with respect to traction technology. ECTED provides the user with a selectable limited slip or locked mode. When "off," the ECTED functions as a performance limited slip differential for on and off-road excitement. When "on," the ECTED becomes a Spool, which is ideal for the quarter-mile or the off-road terrain. All Auburn Gear differentials require a high quality non-synthetic 80W90 GL-5 gear oil. Treat the oil with Auburn Gear, GM, or Ford additive. 3 ounces of additive per 1 quart of oil. A 6 oz. bottle of additive comes with each Auburn unit.
