Looks like I'll be using the link you posted at some point in the future. She decided she didn't want to part out the axle. And I have no where to put a d30 while I wait for it to sell. Darn dorm rooms. Oh well. On to the next one.

sounds like a plan, and no these things are a piece of cake to install. hardest part is getting the hubs off and the axle shafts out. once i had the carrier out on the bench it took me literally 5 min to assemble. when installing just make sure that you measure the gap with a caliper because if your out of spec your warranty will be void and the locker will not function properly. i recommend going out and getting a new pair of thrust washers (washers that sit behind the side spider gears) that way you know you'll be in spec

Good call! I got an extra pin and thing that holds the pin in place. Also axel seals since its right there. Didn't think about that. Anything else you suggest to do while in there?

as long as all your bearings are in good shape thats about it. it makes it easier to install if you grease up the locker before putting it together. just put some bearing grease on the teeth things and they'll slide easier. i run mine in the rear and it was pretty noisy to start with but its really quieted down a lot after about 2 weeks. that or i got used to it. they make some noise but thats normal.

Sorry for another question but where did you get the washers from? I checked Morris and Oreilly's site and can't find them.

Those really work?

I've always just used the ultra black rtv stuff, sounds like those would be quicker than waiting for the rtv to dry...

I've never heard a single complaint about them. I have a set waiting to go on the next time I do a fluid change. Being reusable and not waiting for the RTV to cure before filling seem to be the two greatest benefits. I know of several people who don't wait for that cure time with RTV and have no problem, but I'm a "follow the directions" kind of guy most of the time.

ive never waited for rtv to dry. i squeze it out, line it up and finger tighten all the bolts then take a ratchet or light impact and crank em down. never had one leak.

that being said i hate dealing with rtv though

x2 I've always just followed the directions... wait till the end of the night, goop it on, finger tight the bolts, go to bed. wake up, sock'em down, fill 'er up. I guess that's over kill though haha

Rtv works just fine but if you break down on the trail and have to get into your differentials, the angry mob will convince you otherwise.

I do recall one time a friend had a leak from his TC after filling without waiting for any cure time, but considering how many people don't wait, I'd say it was a fluke occurrence. Might have been due to the much thinner ATF versus gear oil too.

x2. Trail fixes was my motivation behind wanting the LLs. Hopefully I'll never have to deal with it - Murphy does seem to like hanging around me though!
