The best and least expensive locked rear end?

I need a locked rear end for my V6 Sammy. What is the best locked rear end, easiest to install, and best
bang for the buck. What about what I hear called a spooled or welded rear end? Thanks

Re: The best and least expensive locked rear end?

If you stay with the stocker (Rearend) the Lockright can be had for 175.00 and it works very well, as to a spool
or lincon locker, Are you going to trailer it or drive it on the road>? If yes to the last then don't weld it up. Its
twitchy enough with a locker in it no matter a spool or welded. (By twitchy I mean you know its there, once you are used to it it isn't a problem)

Re: The best and least expensive locked rear end?

I agree with Clenn Loud. I just put in a power trax, lock right using my old side gears. It was 182.00 (west coast diffs in ca.). I did the install myeself in under 1 hour of total work time. And I'm a slow non-mechanicly inclined sloth. It's killer being able to negotiate stuff in 2by, while my buddies are struggling in 4x.

The cheapest way is to weld it. Mine is welded. I am very happy with it. The tires do make noises in tight turns though. that might bother some people, but I kinda like it. Just don't weld the front. tried that on my brothers, not a good idea. Almost imposiable to steer. What he has now is a locker in the front, and the rear is welded. This works really well for him.

Re: The best and least expensive locked rear end?

I have a v6 Chevy with an turbo 350 trans. When you weld one up will it still hold up good. I have a good
spare Samurai rear end and dont mind experimenting. I am not a welder but I have a freind that has a welder
and is pretty good. What do I weld? Thanks
