Put more power to the pavement with Auburn Gear's HP Series Limited Slip Differential (LSD). Unlike plate or gear-type differentials, Auburn Gear's HP LSD features a unique cone clutch design which provides additional torque bias. That improved torque bias improves both traction and performance. Torque bias is the ability of any LSD to transfer torque from the wheel with the least amount of traction to the wheel with the most amount of traction. If your off-road vehicle serves double-duty as both a recreational vehicle and daily driver, the Auburn Gear HP LSD provides smooth engagement and actuation with none of the annoying clatter found with solid spools. The driving experience makes for peace-of-mind operation, with less drivetrain fatigue and shock that's common with performance-only spools. The Auburn Gear HP LSD is made right here in the USA, and offers a generous 4-year replacement via the D-RE program along with the standard 1-year warranty.
I put this carrier in the rear of my 2001 Jeep Wrangler and it has worked perfectly. No issues with it so far and works as it should.

By chappy from Battle Creek
great product, is worth the money if you are looking around. I drive on this product every day at least 50-150 miles or more a day and has never once made a noise or anything. I did however have a hard time getting one axle to go into the carrier or pig whatever you prefer to call it. but is working very well so far.

Not 100% on this one
I've had one of these in a 96' 2wd, worked great for years. I bought a 99', 4wd, stock tires and rims, installed this unit imediatly. With only highway driving, I broke out the center spring retainers(pushes against the cones) while driving on an 'on-ramp' to interstate 65 in Louisville, KY. Waranty program is great if your broke down, I'll say that. Their engineering dept, said it broke due to and external force(my fault) and I had to pay for the replacement. Same truck, 9,850 miles later, driving 35 MPH, cruise set, on a straight city street(W 5th st), Lumberton, NC. Truck shutters with a bang. Samething happened again. I don't know if at some point in time they changed a step in manufactering or what. But, I got a good one once, and it was a long time ago.

Auburn Limited Slip
I installed the Auburn limited slip in my 2002 F-350 diesel after the rear end went out for the 2nd time in 200,000+ miles. My truck once again gets sideways on the pavement. That makes me happy.
My truck is a chase/recovery vehicle for desert racing and gets used (sometimes a little too much)
The first corner I turned, I could feel the limited slip working. The first rain was a great day.
I have installed many carriers in many vehicles and I will install an Auburn in my 1935 Ford Street Rod next.

My mechanic recommended this differential over the stock OEM unit. He showed me the issues with the stock unit and how they constantly replace the OEM units with something like the Auburn differential. The spline mated up perfectly and I've been happy ever since!

Launches like a spool,handles like a open differential.I put this in my 1987 swb chevy truck,with a built 406 smallblock turning 465hp,handles it like a champ.Make sure to put additive in every time you service,and it will perform flawless for years to come.I've had one in my F250 for 4 years
Looking to improve traction on my 2012 JK (2door) Sport. I wanted to use a True Trac with my stock 4:10 gears. However!, it has to have it's holes drilled lager to fit stock/factory gear sets. Or would have to have after market gears. Does this product have the same issue? Or will it bolt right in?
Jeep'n Joe from Tillamook, Oregon on
This unit needs to be drilled also but is a cast case so it drills easy compared to the TrueTrac. The TrueTrac is a billet steel case which is much harder than the Auburn. The reason most companies don't drill their units all of the old 44 had 3/8th inch bolts.
The Auburn can be drilled with a normal hand drill or in a drill press.

Auburn Gear's differentials are produced from design to production in their 250,000 sq. ft. plant in Auburn, Indiana. Auburn Gear has been in the manufacturing business in the United States for 60 years. Before making differentials for Jeeps, Auburn Gear manufactured for the busing, aerial lift, agricultural, mining, forest, marine and heavy construction industries. In addition to the plant itself, Auburn Gear's property includes 44 acres. So when they design differentials, they actually install them in Jeeps and then drive them around the trails on their own property to see how they perform. This is how Auburn Gear brings customers excellent quality and we proudly carry many of their products. Shop Auburn Gear Now
