Re: Front Posi/Locker for IFS axle??
I know its not always the case, but in most situations a posi unit for the front is not a necessity. Like has been mentioned before, the case is not strong enough (nor are the axles or carrier or... well you get the point). It has been my experience with my truck that the IFS differential, just by the nature of the way they are built, spin pretty evenly when power is transferred to the front. Of course when you need extra traction... such as one wheel off of the ground, that theory goes out the door. Anyway, just my two cents.
If you want to lock up an IFS front end, and want to stay with IFS [img]images/graemlins/puke.gif[/img] Get yourself a 3/4 or 1 ton front axle with the C6P option code. You get a 9 1/2 inch ring gear then, and you can get a locker for that one.
Or... perhaps a Solid front axle swap? lol [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
