Welding gears

Okay so my friend suggested me I should weld my gears so both my rear tires will go instead of one.

Please help me out on this guys! Is it smart or anything because I don't know much about that!

Dont its not worth it you wont be able to go around corners or in parking lots with out your tires squealing. Looking into a lunch box locker. A lot of off-roaders use them. You dont need to have to gears redone or anything. You can even install it in the car. Thats assuming you have a 8.8? Not to sure about more moderne just classics

Oh okay! Lol I actually didn't know the size of it. But you recommend this? Is there any advantages/disadvantages to it? Besides the fact it burns your tires faster.

Well tbh i have no first hand experience with them but iv rear a lot about them iv never seen any power rating on them but im sire they got to be really strong they act like a lsd. Its also able to install it with out having to take the gears out meaning it'll be cheaper to instal it

All you really need is limited slip differential. You can get them for your 7.5" diff.

Well i dont know its your car, but the 7.5 or 8.8 is reference to the ring gear, you should have an ID tag on the rear end. So once you figure that out the google lunch box locker 7.5 or 8.8 which ever one you have and then go what ever one you like and you need some new gear oil and a new diff cover gasket and then youll be all set

No, just the lunchbox it replaces some parts in the diff all you need in parts is the lunch box gear oil and new gasket

If it's a completely stock rear end then it's a 7.5" for the V6. The GT came with 8.8".
