Level of difficulty; Lockrite

Allright Ive had this lockrite for months now,and Im through threatening to install.It will be a done deal next weekend.I was wondering for all the experts...What is the time factor involved for a mechanically burned out do-it- yourselfer?And is it really as easy as everybody says.It came with instructions,but you know how that can go.

Re: Level of difficulty; Lockrite

It is very easy. It was my first one and I did it last Sunday in 4 hours, total time for everything. The hardest part of the hole thing was getting the differential out and bleeding the brakes. I hate pulling the axles just because it is time consuming. I didn't get technical with the backlash, I just felt it before and made sure it was pretty darn close afterwards. The main thing is to mark everything and lay it all out on your workbench so you can remember what was on the right side or left side.

Re: Level of difficulty; Lockrite

Just a note on the backlash ziffle mentions. In the centre of it all is a cube with holes for the pinns to locate in.
Don't know the right names for these things. Anyway, this cube thing must have clearance or your locker won't work properly and you will get metal filings in your diff.
I found out the hard way.
We gave it the correct clearance with a belt sander.
no probs since.
The install booklet didn't seem all too clear to me.
Other than that it's staight forward.
Hope that helps

The guys are right. It's basic. Take your time. Put on your favorite music. And follow the instructions. They are not as clear as I'd liked. But if you get stuck, well...we'll see you back here!
