Lockrite is cool.

Evening to all... I've finished the lockrite locker (1510) install on the rear axle of my suzuki samurai. The whole process took about 5 or so hours (it was really about 10 hours but I video taped everything ). I'm running 90-75 valvoline synthetic gear oil running in the back (dunno on the exact weight, but I know it is not the 140 weight stuff). The clicks are very quiet, traction kicks arse, nononno major arse!!! 2wd is very very very very fun now! I can finally spin those rear tires and go somewhere! Talk about rooster tails!! 4wd is only for the super goopy or tough stuff, 2wd is very very fun..
The lockrite ping or unlocking click is about as loud as 2 ball-peen hammers hitting themselves gently. The suspention or driveability is VERY weird! The rear suspention feels like it is disconnected somewhere or something was left out or a bolt is real loose. I think the zook is 1 wheel drive most of the time, and I know it is during powered turns (I do not recomend power turning, it gets kinna squrilly, but I've only had it in for 2 days!).
Overall, a locker is a major addition to traction! I love it! Taking everything apart is not hard and is a good idea anyways to check on the status of the bearings and general rear axle condition. The rtv seal is working great, notta drip or nothing has come out of the rear pumpkin. I do suggest all get a locker, they are fun!! 2wd in sloppy or clay like mud is very fun, combine that with 29x10.5 super swamper tsl sx tires and woooo, hello fun!
