Front locker

About a month ago we had a HUGE snow here in Western NC. Well long story short I took out my Samurai for its first ride in the snow.

When I put it in 4wd I noticed that it pulled to the right badly. I rechecked to be sure the locker was turned to lock. Well it was and it still pulled to the right.

Well I posted on another site and got feedback about it just need to be treated with marine grease.

So my question is will this fix the problem? Secondly which ring do I take off: the small (top) ring or the larger(closer to the wheel, bottom ring)? I hope that makes sense.

Thanks again for the help.

Re: Front locker

Do you have an ARB?
You might have a bad hub that only allows one wheel to get the power.
Does it pull only when in 4x4?
How about when in 2x4 with the front end locked?

Re: Front locker

I have not checked it in the other 4wd configs. But I know it does not pull when it is out of 4wd. I have only had it out in the snow once. Because it has only been running recently.

I may try to take a look at it this weekend and get some marine grease. I just need to know where to take it apart at.


PS- Thanks for the reply. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]
