\"Lincoln Lockers\" in stock axles?

I have a 78 CJ5 with stock axles and manual steering. I want to weld the spider gears to gain traction. My question is, Will I still be able to turn in 4wheeldrive with a locker in the front? I don't want to buy detroits because when the stock axles blow, I am upgrading to 60's. Then I will buy Detroits.

Re: \"Lincoln Lockers\" in stock axles?

you will be able to turn as well as when you get a detroit and your 60, of cours on tight trails with switchbacks it wont be easy, i would deffinately recoment it with one exception, when you do get your 60, you wont be able to sell your rear for near as much, but i ran a welded 12 bolt in my yj, til i got a 14 and loved it, just clean the slag good, cause this will kill your bearings

if it aint broke, break it so you can learn to fix it

It's gonna steer very hard with manual steering. Add a power strg. box/gear and cooler while you have to toolbox open.

A freind of mine just welded his front and rear in his 78 cj5. The 5th time he drove it the rear pinion snapped off. (34" swampers) Now we just swapped in some 3/4 ton full length Chevy axles. It would very hard to tip in over now

Thanks for the info so far. Will it make my Jeep jump around corners in two-wheel drive? Or will they just slide? this jeep is kind of a daily driver so I don't want it to be too unstable.
