Front Locker on a CJ
I have a 79 cj 5 with a 258 and a 2.5 inch suspention lift. the jeep does great untill I hit some soft stuff and a front wheel gets off the ground, then I am done. The rear has a good posi and it never only spin one tire, except around turns. I was thinking of sticking a locker in it, and need to know what to get.
I drive it on the street fairly often and dont want something that will make me lose control or make a ton of noise. Will a locker make noise in the front around turns even if the hubs are not locked and it is not in 4wd?
I dont think I can afford an ARB, so I was thinking a detroit EZ, or a powertrax, true trax, Quick lock something in that price range. What do you think will best fit my need(pretty much give me good traction and not make a bunch of racket on the street). Also what is involved with installing this locker? Can I do it or should I have it professional done, how much $$ to have a shop do it?
thanks in advance
