    lockers are stronger but not quite as comfortable for the street as a posi
    i think it is really up to what you are going to do with it
    if it is being set up to race more than to drive daily go with a locker if it is always a daily driver you might want a posi because the lockers tend to be a little noisier
    if it is straight drag you might want to save your money and just get a spool

    me myself i would say a locker for a street and strip machine because a little noise aint gonna kill me at all
    and they arent really noisy they just make a clicking sound when your turning which i wont hear over my loudmouths anyway
