The stock rear is pretty flexy. Best to upgrade to the ZR2 rear axle. Many of those will have the GovLoc. I like them :)
If you really want a locker and do mostly offroad the lunchbox lockers (Powertrax) do work. They can be harsh and really beat the axles and transmission though.

Should. Some had a different size U-joint and require and adapted cross to fit the driveshaft. Mine was direct bolt in :) If you have 3.73 ratio the odds are in your favor as most were that ratio I believe.
