Front Shift Fork worn?

I am about to install a Posi-Loc....just reading the installation stuff, wondering how many of you have found your shift fork work...as in it wobbles on the shaft....jsut hoping I don't have to buy a new one halfway through the install, but also don't want to buy one I don't need....

Just looking for a real world fail rate.....

I replaced mine when I installed my Posi-lock. Just figured that even though it wasn't wobbly worn, I felt better doing the whole shebang all at once. The extra 49 bucks made me feel better.

I put a home made posi-loc in mine about a year ago and my yoke was a little wobbly. It just started giving me problems so I'll be ordering a new yoke tomorrow to replace it. I suggest you replace it while you are there.
