I can\'t tell which is the front or rear 3rd member

I want to have shop swap out my current lock-right from my rear third with the good lock-right I have in a stock third. Problem is I can't tell which one is the front or which one is the rear third with the locker?

How do I tell?

Re: I can\'t tell which is the front or rear 3rd member

I want to have shop swap out my current lock-right from my rear third

*rear 3rd member? Locker gone bad??

with the good lock-right I have in a stock third.

*you have another 3rd with a GOOD locker?

Problem is I can't tell which one is the front or which one is the rear third with the locker?

*So you have a front with a locker, a rear with a locker, and another rear that you want to stay with but has a bad locker? What rear?


How do I tell?

Post some more information please.

look into the sidegears (where the axle shafts go into). One diff has sidegears smaller then the other, the one with the smaller sidegears is the front. Dont pay a shop to do it, its easy

Nowhere,

Sorry about the confusion. I am currently locked front and rear, but my current rear locker needs to be replaced. I have set of spare thirds in my garage (unfortunately with stock gears not the 4.62's I'm runnin. But the spare rear 3rd has a good lockright that I want to swap out.
