locker

i was curious if anyone is useing a positrax no slip locker.
just curious i am looking to get better traction then my stock diffs. the no slip will allow the front to turn unstead of force you straight. they a slip gear that goes in the front that lossen to allow the wheels to turn. i have heard alot about the company i know they are a good company just want to know about them in a bronco.

Re: locker

What axle is it going in? If it's the stock TTB then I'd say posi is ok but just ok. I've been running fully welded in my D60 and I love it. It's like everyone told me. The increase in traction is more than worth the loss of steering. I've got to make multipoint turns sometimes but hell it's cool having all that traction. But like I said probably not a good idea for the TTB. I wouldn't go fully locked with the 19 spline outers.

Re: locker

Yea that doesnt sound safe...haha

Id go with just a limited slip in the front. I dont see the neccesity for a locker in the front that isnt selectable.

Re: locker

I recently did Detroits in the front and rea when I upgraded to 4:88. Two things that I can say is 4:88 is barely enough for 35" tires and a locker is not necessary up front. Now to contradict myself, I'm glad I have it. Only do it if you get rid of the auto hubs so that you can unlock the axle facing the dangerous side of the trail. I did this to avoid the Air Lockers price and necessity of pump and wiring.

Oh contrare! I've needed my welded front lots of times. Funny thing about upgrades is that when you do them you kind of find places where they will come in handy.

Just don't put a fulltime locker in the TTB! If you've gotta have one then the ARB is the way to go. Spendy though.

Re: locker

sorry i have not clarified they are not all time lockers. the fact you can steer is only when the locker is turned on. it has a slip when the locker is on that allows the wheels to turn. it is set up for both the ford 9" and the front dana 44. they do not replace the differential. they go into the original diff case and then use all the same mechanics to make them work. when turned on they are as close to a fully welded axel with out the welding.
i hop that makes things alittle better information for an opinion
