Symptoms

Detroit Locker (DET)
Probably the most durable design available, these are the king of traction differentials. Usually causes banging and clunking, but gives 100% lock-up whenever traction is needed. Unlocks when negotiating a turn so that the outer wheel can turn faster than the ring gear and the inside wheel, with no needed interaction from the driver. New Sof-Locker design has damping device to reduce banging and clunking, and includes a carrier case that is stronger than stock except in 2 applications, where the original factory carrier case is used. Only the 10.5" 14 bolt truck and the Nissan V6 designs use the factory carrier case and these cases are both very strong. (aftermarket) 1-year warranty
