Sidekick/Tracker axle/diff questions?

What rear axle do the Sidekick/Tracker's use?
Specifically a 93 Tracker 2 door 4x4 with a 5 speed.

Are there any traction adders available for it other than the Lock Right, ARB, and factory limited slip?

How do the Lock Right and the factory L/S perform on and off road?

Re: Sidekick/Tracker axle/diff questions?

Hey dparker -
Is there an easy way to disable the ABS system for off-roading? That can lead to very interesting situations when you need to lock the wheels and it won't due to ABS. On just one end like it has it really gets exciting descending a steep loose hill.

Re: Sidekick/Tracker axle/diff questions?

Thanks Dparker.

What's the differences between an EZ Locker and a Lock Right? I'm looking for a good traction adder, but not necessarily the bad driving characteristics a lot of people keep saying Lock Rights have in Suzi's. This is Michigan and in the winter, one good slam engagement could send me spinning like a hockey puck.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Sidekick/Tracker axle/diff questions?

Only difference between lock-right and ez locker is the manufacturer. In fact there was or is a suit going on between the two companies for patent infringment. You can unplug the ABS sensor on the rear carrier to negate the Abs which is only on the rear brakes anyway. Kerry

Re: Sidekick/Tracker axle/diff questions?

Kerry, I see from your profile you're in New York, so I'm assuming you drive it in the winter some. How does the Lock Right do on the slippery winter roads?

Re: Sidekick/Tracker axle/diff questions?

You have ABS on your 93? I didn't think it was an option until 96.

Anyway, I have disconnected the ABS plug on the rear of my X90 (same drivetrain as what you have) and it has made no difference on or offroad. ABS is rotten for offroading anyway. Non-ABS puts YOU in control.

Re: Sidekick/Tracker axle/diff questions?

No, I wasn't sure if I had ABS or not. I called a Chevy dealership today and gave my VIN number to the parts guy. He said it didn't have ABS, but mentioned it was an orderable option. Lucky me the buyers were cheap!

So what are the specifics of it? Axle spline count and diameter, ring gear diameter, etc?
