Got the posi-lok cable and Solid diff cover installed. Went for a test spin today...
I feel invincible in my YJ now. Hopefully I'll have my winch installed in the next week or two and then I'll be set for a bit while I shop for an 8.8 rearend.

|Tyler92yj||in a dana 30 with 4:10 gears you will have to pull the carrier the ring gear is to big to get the locker in the center i just did one yester day|

|AV8R||I know i have to pull the driver's side axle out a few inches... Since the passenger side is CAD, how do I move that center shaft over so I can remove the carrier?|

|eatdirt||I believe the driveshaft spins even in 2 wheel without a locker. This is why you can shift into 4 hi at 20mph|

I would think the front driveshaft would spin in 2WD with a locker. I guess I should expect to have it balanced if I get a vibration.

|denisbaldwin||I did the "go big or go home" approach with mine. Did the Detroit for my D30. After having driven in a few Detroit in the front setups before, I realized that it made no difference in 2WD (Still streetable) but, as soon as I put it in 4WD, I was in business.|

Occasionally it will pop now if i am fully turned in like a parking lot and back out now that i have a non disco axle. But that is the extent of it.

Your front shaft will spin. Ive also noticed the locker is always engaged untill you coast a turn. It is locked untill one tire spins faster than another without torque applied. With the disco not engaged there is no resistance from the disco side so it spins all the time like it is locked.
I have a spartan In the front and for 259shipped it was one of the best cost effective mods i have done.

I went Spartan locker and tj shafts. My front driveline is always spinning now but I was lucky not to have any vibration.
My Spartan came with a hardened cross pin and does not use thrust washers. Installation was pretty simple. The carrier may need to be removed. Make sure all the Bearing caps and hardware are installed exactly how you removed it.

Ive used an EZ locker (quite a few years back) and two Aussie Lockers.......I'd recommend the Aussie locker.....not too noisy, and both always worked as expected....easy install too.

Not to hijack, but i am in a very similar position looking into lockers...a posilock cable (engaged and pulled to "lock" the front axle) would keep the front axle locked with or without torque correct? and alos keep it lock even in 2wd?
i have heard good things about detroit d30 lockers...

|Xpress||A lunchbox only locks up with torque being applied to it, so in 2wd mode your front axle will be like normal, especially without the passenger shaft engaged.|

Tell me about D30 lockers
It's about time for a locker for my front axle. For now and until I go full-width, I will go with a lunchbox locker so I can DIY. I'm also going to install a Posilok cable.
With a locker, I assume that my front drive shaft will be live and turn in 2WD, correct?
Which D30 locker do you have or recommend?
