i just got a 2000 dodge dakota with the v8 magnum, the rear end is on the verge of locking up. Im pretty sure its the limited slip 391 or 392, its one or the other not 100% sure. Im in the dayton ohio area, if anyone has one for sale please let me know. Thank you!

there is a tag on one of the rear cover bolts it will tell you the gear ratio. if the cover is round its the 8" if its stop sign shape it is the 9.25. I would take the cover off and inspect the teeth in the gears look for metal in the bottom of the case IT MAY BE REBUILDABLE.
