TTB Limited Slip ???'s

I have an open carrier on the front end of my 87 Bronco. I was wanting to put a factory LS carrier in it. I found one for about $75.00 that needs clutches , but, the rest of it looks pretty good as far as the inner pinions and side gears go. I keep seeing these write ups about how you have to add a spring in between the slip and stub to keep the axle from backing out of the pumpkin on the passenger side b/c the "e" clip wont fit onto the end of the axle shaft that retains it when a LS carrier is installed.

What I am trying to figure out is how Ford kept the axles in the factory LS units from the start or am I missing something here in translation?

Where is the cheapest place to get kevlar clutches or carbon fiber clutches on the web?

I think they are using factory rear dana 44 L/S units. I know that with Ranger's and Expo's, we used Jeep rear Dana 35 L/S and locker's........

I'm looking for the same information. I don't want to tear the whole front end apart to find out i had gone the wrong direction. My powerlock is out of my Willys with 30 spline axles and 4.88 gears.

I am sure somebody that frequents the board in this section will have the info. If not then I may look for another section to post it in. However, I would think the Ford gurus here would know all about some TTB shit.

E-clip eliminator:
http://www.therangerstation.com/tech..._external.html

Spring shown fits the D44 TTB just the same. Don't weld on your shaft though, a couple hose clamps around the ends of the boot is plenty to hold the spring in place.

Also, some L/S carriers will have a provision to get the clip in there... though I'd probably still do the clip eliminator just the same if you plan on wheeling it offroad at all (makes replacement of a broken axle shaft 10 easier).

I have installed the spring on mine. Driven on the highway, crawling over rocks, or blowing through mud and snow. No problems. Ive also done a removable diff cover on my d44 hd ttb with no problems as well. Hope to do a thread on it at some point.

I dont know for how many years they ran, but in the early 80's, the TTB setups had a bolt on retaining plate type setup- same concept as what holds in an axleshaft on a Ford 9 inch rearend.

Yeah, I am pretty sure it was from 80-81.. Hard to find.

When I put the D50 in my truck I installed a power lok and LOVE it, with 4.56 gears I went through about 8 ujoint/axle sets when I was wheeling it, full ciricle snap rings with spicer joints made a huge difference in longevity.

As for the missing retainer, I've got a spring sitting inside the middle slip joint forcing the axle shafts apart, keeping pressure on the wheel seal on the wheel side and keeping the shaft inside the diff on the diff side. I've had issues with the cap popping out and intermediately loosing 4wd when going over bumps (shaft coming out of the locker) - I'm willing to give that spring mentioned above a shot, minus the ghetto bugger welds though, lol.
