Do you have part numbers for the MSD ignition coil and Eaton LSD? There's a myriad of options for both... Thanks!

The trutracs are great. You don't even know they are back there, except that you can drive just about anywhere in 2wd (I don't even think I have put it in 4lo since I installed it). Even during tight turning parking lot maneuvers. Only time I notice a noise back there is when there is zero traction, like in mud or snow/ice. When it's searching for grip you can hear it bang as it locks.
