yeah, the FR unit is a clutch style unit, and the clutches generally last between 30-50,000 miles.

For the Detriot Lockers, go to the website, and call for the nearest dealer, or see if you can find a wholesaler near you.

The reason they make the FRs that way is NVH, and cost.

3.73s will work fine -if you have an auto, make sure you get the speedometer and computer calibrated.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
