Locker install help....

I am planning on ordering lock-rights for the front and rear of my Sammi. Anyone have opinions to which is better, Lock-Right or EZ-Locker? Also, my 87 Sammi has 109k miles on it, should I replace the side couplers, do they go bad often? And, last question, what else should I replace while I'm in there, seals, bearings, etc? Any comments or assistance is greatly appreciated.

Re: Locker install help....

I used the loc-rite. For some reason they seem to be more popular than the ez-locker. DO NOT get the loc-rite with the sidegears. Go for the cheaper 1510 model. the stock side gears tend to work better and last longer than the new side gears (don't know why)

You should do new axle seals(at the ends of the tubes) while its apart and check the wheel bearings. you don't need to touch the pinion bearings or such but its a good time to look over everything in the third member. The loc-rite comes with really good instructions make sure you read them and follow them.

Re: Locker install help....

Jason, You can find a write up about the install on Izook. The best price I know for lockers is from Tim at North Coast Offroad. Use your original side couplers. Pick your poison as to which is better. I run the EZ-lockers because Brent at Trail Tough told me the pins and springs were a better design. I know Macromotive.com usually has very good prices on lockers also.HTH

1530's (one's with sidegears) are a complete different style locker than the 1510. The 1530 is a pain to set up right, and you need a good selection of shims to do it.

As for price, the cheapest I've seen is $174.95 with free shipping at Nat Tire and Wheel.

Otherwise, NCO Tim has the same price, and they usually are in stock, and you'll be supporting a zooker.

I like that idea...of spending my money on Zuke products from Zuke vendors.
