Spartans front and rear

I ordered lunch box lockers and a cable actuator/ posi locker for my jeep today. Are there any odd tools you guys know of that I will need or any tips you might have for me? Thanks a bunch!

Also what gear oil would you recommend I put back in it? Anything special?

You can use regular gear oil recommended for your vehicle.

Only special tools you should need are a set of feeler gauges to determine tolerances when installing the new locker. It is possible that you may need to add shims to one or either side of it when installing.

Generally, you are ok with just putting the stock shims off of your factor carrier back on it and in you go. But you want to measure it out, just to be sure. They usually come with a little sheet to write your tolerances down on for warranty purposes.

I got the rear done this weekend and man what a difference it makes! Im waiting for parts to come in to do the front end. I ordered a new fork for the actuator and when the package arrived it was empty... Kinda sucked. So hurry up and wait still

I was not aware you had to remove the carrier, all you are doing is replacing the spider gears with the Spartan....

Im considering this type of locker for my 8.8, let me know how you like it...

It is neccessary to do only to remove the crosspin. It interefers with the ring gear and you have to pull the carrier to take the ring gear off before you can remove the crosspin.

I never said anything about removing the carrier. I was talking about taking the shims off of your spider gears to put on the sides of your locker.

Looks like yours had had it! lol. When I did my Cherokee, they were in nice shape.

Aussie-locker recommends to put them on the ends of the two pieces for the locker to keep correct tolerances.

I was talking about the d30 front. The rear, like you said, is hit or miss depending on what gears are in it.
