Paging Mr. Bronco.....paging Mr. BurnedBronco.....

Hey Burned.....since a used Detroit for the 10.25 is as elusive as the holy grail, what's your take on the durabilty of a Lock Right. I just picked up a used one on EBay, so I guess it's a little late if it's crap, but I wanted a second opinion.

Mind If I Butt In . . .

'Scuse me but since you brought it up . . .

I've been looking hard at those Detroit Lockers on Ebay . . . but . . . When I was checking out Detroit's website, I saw several differnet part numbers for different 9" rears . . .

Now I figure this is probably a marketing ploy to get me to buy a shiny new locker that I KNOW will be right - I mean, if it's a locker for a 9" its for a 9", right? Would there really be any difference?

- confused, as usual

Re: Mind If I Butt In . . .

A detroit locker IS the carrier. There are different carrier sizes for different R&P ratios. That's prolly why they list so many different #'s for the 9"

Re: Mind If I Butt In . . .

you also have to make shure you get the carrier for the right amount of axle splines.

Re: Mind If I Butt In . . .

Actually BurnedBronco is right, the part numbers are for the 4 different detroit lockers that I know of for the 9", depending on the spline count, gear ratio does not matter. 2 for the 28 spline I think, 1 part # for the 31 and one for a 35 spline.
