Good reason to get LS dif

Put in a LS dif years ago. I have not had to rebuild my passenger side stub axle assembly since. That is the drive side of an open dif. If all is going well I never think about it but before I put in the LS dif I had a constant recurring problem with the spline going south.

With the LS dif the torque load on the rear stub axles is split equally to each wheel until the dif breaks lose then it is in proportion to the dif slip rating. The reduction of load on the stub axles with a LS dif may be why I have had no problem for years. Just another reason to get a LS dif besides the lower ratio.

Having fun

I've had an open diff (the same one) in my car for all of its 374K miles and never had a problem with stub axles. This despite many autocrosses and nearly always rather "spirited" driving.

Don't know why you used to have problems but I don't think it's endemic to open diffs. I would be inclined to believe there was something else contributing to the problem. And, in all the years I've been on this board this is the first time I've seen a post like yours.
