Lockers up front?

Couldn't find the answer in search mode.

When a locker's in the front, does it create turning problems?

How 'bout when the transfer case is not engaged but the hubs are still engaged?
Still "bang and pop?"

Reason I'm asking is around here I leave the hubs locked all the time but would like a locker up front.

Thanks, Rich

A locker up front will make turning more difficult with the hubs locked.... no matter if you are in 4WD or 2WD. Most guys usually tough it out for awhile before adding in power steering.

With the hubs NOT IN you will not be able to tell the difference.
With the hubs IN you will be able to tell you are locked.

I wouldn't know, I will not ingage my hub's untill I have to. (most of my buddies are in low lock by then)
I leave the hubs locked all the time: you will not want to if you install a locker, UNLESS you get an ARB.
Then you won't notice a thing untill you flip the switch [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Lockers up front?

Here's my experience with running a Locrite up front.I
didn't notice any more steering effort when wheeling on
dirt but sure did on rocks.When driving in 2WD with the
hubs locked you could here the locker clicking during a
turn but there was no "banging or popping".
