Truetrac Limited slip Anyone want to let one go?

First question - Did any classics or disco 1s come with limited slips, was that a dealer option or not?
Second question - Does anyone have a limited slip they want to part with for a 94 D-90 24 splines correct? I am looking for the rear but will consider a front one.
Third if no to #2 - Does anyone know of the best place to get one or....are there any other make/model of vehicles that use this part?

Thank you,
Clay
oooo btw - I have rulled out ARB lockers and Detroit Lockers. I don't want anyone wasting their precious time on discussing those choices, as I am a cheapskate .

I posted a response to this, but apparently forgot to hit 'Send'

1. No Rovers came with LSD or a locker from factory
2. You can reverse a front to rear and vice versa -- http://discoweb.org/truetracgears/index.htm

EE has them, but prices are high [they do come with new bearings tho] -- http://www.expeditionexchange.com/tractech/ ... search around for the part #s on google, you should be able to find some cheaper prices.. Also, I'm not sure how modified your truck is... but a lot of people say that the trutrac's dont work on bigger than 33" tires... I have 33x11.5 on my d2 with a trutrac in the front and it works fine..

I just put a Detroit Locker in the back and I bought it from Randy's Ring & Pinion and only paid $500. In two more months I'm buying a Truetrac for the front, it will also be purchased from Randy, as I was quoted $450. I have purchased other things from them in the past, and their prices seem to be the best, good customer service and very knowledgeable. I got my genuine Timken bearings at Autozone. Autozone seems to be the only place with name brand Timkens on the shelf.

Actually, the first 500 RRCs to leave the factory came with a rear LSD.
