Re: Locker for IFS

Do a search on this topic, IFS LOCKER.

I did a search. I looked through 90 posts and didn't find any lockers for 8.2 front end. I see that you don't like the idea of a locker for the front because stuff'll break. I break stuff regularly anyway, most of the time it's cv joints. My sway bar is removed so I can change an axle in 20 minutes - 6 bolts at one end and the axle nut at the other and it slips right out.
I ran for a while with a welded front diff, didn't break stuff any more than usual and there was a big increase in traction. The disadvantage of the welded diff is you can only run 2WD or full lock 4WD, and it's nearly impossible to steer with the front end locked unless you're on slippery ground.
I'd rather have the traction when I need it. Most of my driving is off road and I don't mind breaking parts once in awhile if it gets me where I wanna go. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
