lock right issue

Have a 1995 jeep YJ with a dana 30 up front had a lock right locker installed a while back busted an outer axle shaft so i upgraded to the chrome molly axles ( the one on the right hand side done away with the shift fork that locks the two axles together ) (ONE PIECE AXLE ) now it seems like both are locked at all times cant turn it on the pavement. any ideas or remedies >?

yeah that was the way they used to unlock the front axle now you added a one piece shaft. try lock out hub conversion or change out to CJ style bolt pattern with lock out hubs

Check your transfercase linkage. It sounds like it is not shifting out of 4 wd.

Did you check the locker after the shaft install? It seems that it may have moved around a little inside and it wasn't unlocking at all. The one piece shaft will make the steering a little taut but not that you can't turn. The locker works with power added through the driveshaft so there is a problem with the linkage and there's power or the springs aren't spacing it out at all.

Sounds like the same thing that happend to me when I went to the one piece axel shaft, figured out that the lock rite was not set up to correctly the first time (the gap tolerence on the locker was slightly off) I ended up adding an extra thrust washer (maybe a worn carrier), looked good to the eye but when I measured with a digital caliper it was to wide of a gap/tolerence. At least that was my expierience. Good luck

This is most likely your problem.

Open the diff again and check the locker with feeler gauges to ensure correct tolerances.
