      I found a good deal on a newly rebuilt limited slip, Im just wondering what is needed to install it besides tools and time. Id imagine its not just as simple as swapping out the open carrier for the LS. Its a 98 xlt, 31 spline 8.8. Any help is greatly appreciated as id like to know before i buy it.

      remove ring gear from old carrier
      bolt ring gear to new carrier
      install carrier
      check backlash
      change backlash as needed
      verify contact pattern
