I had just a lunch box locker in the front and the 2,3,4 point turns were bad enough with that. I could not imagine it with a spool.
Not sure if you had hydro assist or full hydro steering if that would help or maybe even take care of the issue.

Personally I would go with a full Detroit.
If it was a trail only, limited on road then yes a spool.
Reason I would not put a spool on a daily driver would be tire wear.
Large offroad tires are exspensive enough.
i would like to go with a detroit but im tight on money which is why im deciding between a spool or lock right. and it does have a lot of time on the road as its my dd from school work and wherever else ill go.

The aussies do not have a tire size limit. Not that the lock rights etc will not do ok with larger tires, but aussies warranty wont be negated by larger tires. I think the lock rights have a 32" limit in their warranty?

i was just reading another forum what about welding the rear? isnt that the same thing pretty much as a full spool just a lot cheaper and keeps it 50/50 the whole time?

Spare me the freaking melodrama, I already said I would not do a locked DD.


You assume that your buddies welding ability and mine are the same. I'm a little bit of a grownup too in that I have no desire to get over 55 mph in a softtop lifted jeep much less get "on the freeway". Sounds like you buddy stuck a mig welder to the spiders on a d35 and then decided to drive like he was in a rx8

I trust my welds as do most state DOT's

Also explain how an axle can get out from a broken c-clip with disc brakes.

i would not weld it, if you drive on the steet alot, go lockrite, in the 60, if not alot of street driving, go full spool, stupid strong, but it will wear the tires faster..as others have said they are both predictable, so the handling drawbacks are minimal, but do not weld it if you ever plan on a regear, or want it to last more than a few years...i just rebuilt my rear axle (built by PO) after only 4k of miles on a welded, brand new set of 5.38's in a waggy 44, the carrier was warped from welding, the welds were all cracked, and the yoke was worn like the axle has seen 200k, its not worth it in the long run.

i cost me over $900 to fix this, for new gears, install kit, labor, full spool, and a new yoke, the axle itself was ok still strait, and without premature wear on the housing....i was lucky.....o and it fragged my ring and pinion too not worth it...get a lockrite,,,,

There is no point arguing over this anymore, We will not agree and are just mucking up the thread. Best of luck to you and I really Do hope you do not kill yourself or someone else.
