Re: lockers

Alan, i have two lockrites and they work great. The one in the rear doesnt work right, but im going to dig into it in a few weeks and figure it out. Good to see you on the board. Max

Re: lockers

I know they both have virtually the same construction but my EZ locker seems much louder than my buddies Lockrite. I'd go with the Lockrite.

Re: lockers

Just to keep things balanced I've been running the EZ Lockers for a couple of years now and I'm sold on them.

Re: lockers

I'm running a lockrite in the rear. It's great! Clicks around tight turns on the road and occasionally lets me know it's there with a slight tug, but that's locker performance! My buddy has one in his Toyota with over 100k miles on it, working great. It has my vote [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: lockers

Well I've had both, and I like the Lockright better for only on reason....They have a better warranty

Re: lockers

I've got Lockrite in the rear, Detroit in front. Both with stock side gears. Why one of each? Price and availability at the time. I've got about 10,000 miles on them and haven't had any problems. Only thing is getting used to the slight wiggle when you shift and the unloading pop (scares the crap out of you the first time or two). Took about 15 minutes and then you know what to expect.

Re: lockers

I fugure that "POP" (unloading) is just my Zuke saying, "Hey, I ought to be off-road" and reminding me it's there and ready to go. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: lockers

Well, I run a lock-right in the front, (welded rear), and it's worked fine so far. I chose it over the ez 'cause they have such a better history and warrenty, and my searches on this board revealed that most of these zookers use 'em.

Re: lockers

I had an ez-locker in the rear of my zuk for about 11 months,then it decided to explode on BussLine Hill in Clayton.Now i'm using a Lockright,after 9 months I expect it to die anytime now(extreme noise and loosness). I hope to get the spool from Randy's ring&pinion as soon as it is availiable.
