Re: side gear locker

The side gears mesh with the spider gears, if you weld a little bit on the side gears, the weld will stop the side gear from turning on the spider gears @ a specific point. The side gears are allowed to turn freely, but when the welded area comes in contact with the spider gears it will stop, prob figure about ~~ 40* of movement maybe? That would equate to maybe 1~2 feet.. With the weld present and pressing on the spider gear (locked) the gears would be trying to force eachother appart, I'd be worried about gears cracking and the carrier housing cracking, maybe the bearings too.
