Default Rear End Problems

Okay, so its a little bit of a prroblem but I want to fix it nonetheless, so I had to replace all of the bearings in the rear differential, replace some spider gears and replace my clutch plates with some used ones that were in better shape, along with an axle seal, wheel bearing and pinion seal, and now the "new" clutch pack is useless and I have an open differential not a limited slip differential anymore, does anyone have any reccomendations for a clutch pack for the 8.8, i think 28 spline, that is better than stock? burnouts are something that I would like to be able to accomplish without doing a "one wheel peel" and I think that is where my problem is. of course it isnt just for burnouts, its so I know everything is in proper working order.
Hey, I have a 2000 ford ranger XLT, off-road edition, 4.0L, V6 engine and I'm 17

I suggest that if you're going through the effort of rebuilding it and you're spending good money on a clutch kit, that you'll better spend your money on a locker that won't wear out with aggressive driving like clutch packs do.
