Default Differential Issues - Looking for a Assembly Diagram

I have an 02 Ram 1500 with the 4.7L 4x4 and the 9.25 / 3.92 Limited Slip Differential. I have been having shuddering issues when accelerating from a stop. Additionally I found the broken clutch pack retaining clips in the bottom. I was luck though in that I cannot see any housing damage, and none of the pieces wedged in the gears or bearings. The shuddering I am assuming is from a worn clutch pack. To fully understand the implications of the missing retaining rings and repair options I was looking for an assembly diagram of the internal differential case where the clutch pack is located. Can anyone provide this or a photograph showing the diassembled clutch pack? Also what are the implications of running with out the clips. I have seen a lot of discussion on this and how Chrysler replaced them under warrantly but not any details on what can happen when you run without them. Additionally nothing on rebuilding the clutch pack. Is that not an option? I assume from all of this that my time is limited and I will be installing a TruTrac or Auburn unit soon. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Don't even bother with trying to fix the stock LSD, it's a worthless heap of trash. Get an Auburn or Tru-Trac, you will not be disappointed.

I agreed with replacing it but if you are truely wanting to repair and rebuild it due to money reasons (or lack thereof) then I attached the info below.

aii01, if it is giving you issues, you are better off replacing it. I had an open diff and installed a Powertrax Lockrite in my driveway. They do offer units for the OEM LSD rear ends also. There is a long thread about broken C clips in the drivetrain section for 3Gen Rams on dodge talk...
