Re: LOCKER QUESTIONS
Well Bigbear, I actually just put mine in today. It had been sitting under my bed for a while, but finally got to it. You do not have to touch the pinion, but you do have to take the ring gear off. If you follow the instructions, you don't have to readjust anything, just bolt it and line up the marks you make before disassembly. The hardest part was pulling the axles and stuff like that, putting the locker in the diff was pretty easy. I have the same kit you mentioned, the powertrax, without side gears. My side gears were in good shape. Don't forget to buy new axle seals ($3 each, at the most), and some gasket maker to reinstall the third member. And don't over tighten the third member bolts, I twisted one off before it even got tight. I was very happy with the results. I drove around making tight turns and listening for the clicking that it is supposed to make. At first I didn't know if it was working or not, but then I heard the clicking, very very quietly. Besides the very faint clicking in tight turns, I haven't noticed much difference at all, it is working very well. I am glad I picked the lock-right. Let me know if you have any questions, as it is still fresh in my mind since I just did it today.
