Aussie Lockers.....PROS vs CONS...ease of install?
 
I just purchase a pair of Aussie Lockers for my 2001 TJ. Dana 30 for the front and Dana 35 for the rear.

Should have em in a couple weeks.

I am just curious if anyone has any thoughts????
Good or Bad.


thanks!!! Todd.

I just installed one in the front and the hardest part was getting the carrier to stay in the vise good(small vise):D . Also what worked best for me in getting the carrier out of the housing was using two pry bars on a upper and lower ring gear bolt, heres a picture of what Im talking about: http://www.stu-offroad.com/axle/d30seals/seal-5.jpg . and put something soft under it or have someone ready to catch it just in case it falls out fast when you do that.

Here is a couple write-ups that I bookmarked:

and a fluid capacity chart:

I printed out the one from 4x4xplor when i did mine.


Also I can here the clicking sometimes when I turn slowly which isn't that bad but "they" say it goes away after a while. I'm testing it out tonight so I'll tell you how it does offroad.

hope that helps some... http://www.wranglerforum.com/images/icons/icon14.gif

I've heard nothing but good things about the Aussie's. I plan on doing the same thing you are doing, when I re-gear.
