With a quick search I found that Eaton and Strange make LS diffs. I'm sure there is more though.
I have an 8.8 With 4:10

How much are they

Can't forget the cost for install....it's not for the novice. Expect to pay somewhere from $150-300 just for install on the carrier.

In your case you're way up there in miles.....those clutches are probably gone...

Once they hit about 50-70k is when those clutches are deemed 'gone'. My brothers has 22k on it and it's still pretty darn tight. Same with Marie's at like 23k. Both TracLoc's.

Sig says you've got an off road model...those come with the limited slip. And that particular limited slip(Tracloc) is rebuildable and doesn't required gear setup(that 150-300 I talked about earlier). Rebuild kit is like $60 and I'm told the shadetree driveway mechanic can do it. Though I've never done it yet.

I'd say thinking about a new axle is a little too much considering you've got a rebuildable unit in the truck right now as it is.
