    Can the carriers be rebuilt? Not the whole thing. Just the Posi. I'm getting conflicting information. It is the original posi unit in an 81 Z28.

    It's not lighting up both tires anymore. Just the right side tire. That's why I'm asking.

    Depends on which one it is. If it's the Traction Lock then Tory makes new clutches and shims for it. If it's an Auburn then it's scrap metal.

    You have to remove the cover and look at it.
