My lockrite pulls to one side or the other,sometimes, when shifting up through the gears. When turning in a circle on pavement, it can really buck and sqwall. It's nothing I can't live with given the great offroad performance. Just wondering if it is common.
That's with the locker in the rear. You really don't want a front locker for street driving. -Yes, you can unlock the hubs,... oh, ...here's another whole discussion brewing here.... better leave that one alone. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Welcome to life with a locker. Just wait until you have your tires aired down to 3psi and pull off the trails on to the highway. You put the pedal to the medal and get going til about 5K rpms then slam it into second. NOW THATS A RIDE! You can change two lanes of highway in a heartbeat.
Hey Suzuski! Howdy
Nice to get to meet you too. That was my trial run at Attica, the first time I've been able to do some real wheelin' with my Samurai. -I loved it! Hopefully, I'll be able to attend next year's ZukiMelt and meet a few more enthusists. The Jeep Jamborees were great for see how others wheeled their Jeeps, good and bad, and I figure a "Suzuki" run would be helpful too. As I said, "This ain't no Jeep" - she handles much differently, it's kinda like learning how to off-road again.
To the topic.... I've heard that front lockers (although I've never driven with them) can give some trouble in turning on the rocks when a tire is lifted. And with the light weight of the Sami, it may or may not affect the tight corners in a wooded trail. Anybody with front lockers have any input here? It would be good to hear a trail report on how they handle. Thanks
