I would recommend having someone who has done gears before either help you, or have them do it. To install a new gear set, you need a few specialized tools, and have to be very precise with your backlash and gear mesh. It's not as easy as just putting some gears in, you will have nothing but problems from now on if you don't do it correctly.
As for the Lockright, if you are going to be doing a lot of street driving, I would look into either a selectable locker or something like a Detroit Truetrac. The Lock-Right will click loudly around turns which can get annoying. If that won't bother you, then it will be great for you.
Shoot me a PM if you need any other help, I'll be glad to give you a hand!
