alright guys, so it's a 50/50 deal
some of you prefer the front locked, some prefer the both axles
so I will listen both of you
I will lock the front axle first and make a try on a trail or little week end expedition.
if not enough, then will lock the rear after.
tks so much

I'm running the Spartan in the front(Dana 30) and rear(Dana 44) of my YJ and haven't had any issues with them. I'm running 33" Goodyear MTR's, and I'm very happy with them. It's not a DD, but it does get quite a bit of street use. The rear unloads from time to time, but I've gotten used to it. Good luck with your decision

I personally think its better to lock the front. It's a lot easier to pull the rear over obstacles than push the front.

I have finally received my spartan locker for my dana 30, I follow the instructions for the carrier removal, it's a hard job because I remove the little pin but the cross pin in the differential is just in front of the ring... so I'm stuck in the removal process.. cannot slide it off, so I tried to remove the C clip from the passenger side, and no c clip on the driver side
from the video on youtube,
the axle shaft should move freely ???? I have only one c clip that was passenger side, I don't really understand ??? the rust of the hub assembly is keeping the hub stuck on the axle
is anybody has experienced this ???
Idon't know how to proceed now
help

You should only have a c clip on the passenger side, which holds in the inner shaft. to remove the other shaft you need to remove the wheel bearing. If this is the first time you've removed it you'll have to get aggressive with a breaker bar and some PB blaster.

Agreed on the push pull phylosphy. I only used my rear locker in mud or on really difficult rock climbs. Hard to find rock hear in Florida, but is does exist.

I second your hearing your results after installing the front locker.

I have just returned after a very good drive test on the highest mountain here, in tahiti, with good mud, some rocks, and sloppy road, and I'm so happy, tis guys for the recommendations.
I have locked the front with the spartan, and I can't wait to receive my aussie locker for the rear. But whoaaaa, guys this little locker makes the big difference, I was able to reach some spots, that I did not when I was on open differential at the front, if you can buy it, then buy it, very satisfied... my 4LO with the front locked, is impressive, it will reach every obstacle with ease
I have a Facebook page, steven loussan, I post some pictures, on the forum, the pics have to be so small that you cannot appreciate.
so if you want to travel with my pics then ask me a friend request.
excellent locker

Nice review. I look forward to seeing how you like the rear and front locked together.

I have locked the rear with the aussie, for now I find that clicking noise is strange, even on small turn,
I tried to make a little burn out, just to see how it perfoms, and the traction seems to be very good , both wheels turned easily
I will post the final result, when i will go offroading
Tks guys
