lockright locker in a dana 30

i am getting ready to install a lockright locker in my front and rear axles (dana 30/35) i was wondering how hard is the locker on the front axle and ball joints, and with regular driving?

I have a lockrite in my D30. I have broken the passenger side u-joint, but the Lock rite has held up well. On the road its not noticable. I also had one in my D35 that self destructed on the trail one day. Just be certain its installed correctly and i think you'll get good service out of it.

Won't notice it because the YJ front axle is 3 peices. The passenger side locks together when you engage 4WD and the vac. accuator pulls a fork moving a collar over the two peices. Once the splines match up the collar slides over and the front driveshaft is being spun by the transfer case and the tires are spinning. I locked my passenger side axle like a TJ's and still can't notice my aussie locker on the road. Off road, its a whole different ball-game. Front now has much improved traction.

when i talked to 4wd hardware about it, they told me that i would have to get the lock out hub conversion to be able to drive it on the road. is this true? or are they just wanting more $

Total BS
You dont need lockout hubs to run a lockright in a YJ. The CAD essentially does that (only on one side though)

Yeah, the hub conversion thing is total BS. I really can't beleive they told you that. Like I said before, because of the axle disconnect it will be like driving with an open diff when not engaged.

sweat! well thank you guys a ton!
i am getting the locker for free off of my brother, he is putting in a kingpin dana 60 front and a dana 70 rear into his 83 CJ7, so if the part fits i was going to use it. I have another friend who is putting in a dana 44 rear end so i will buy his rear lockright locker for $100.

i believe just a few hours 2-3 at most. depends on how easy it is to get the front hubs off and axle shafts out.

during the install the hubs were the hardest part for me, and i broke a bolt accidentally so be sure to work those 3 bolts progressively in and out as you go spraying em with PB blaster or something. take your time with them because when they break they are a ***** to get out.
