So rear welded and a welded vac disco front LOL
You selected to lock the rear and just use a cable lock for the vac disco XD

I really like how if you need your steering back you can shut your locker off

I believe the existence of the locker affects the steering, regardless of whether it's locked or not.

Idk for sure. All of my knowledge on lockers is second hand information. I've always heard that though.

You'll feel a big difference between locked and unlocked. You'll just never have the turn radius you had without a locker.

I'm not saying you're wrong, because I don't know either. I just don't understand how unlocked would still effect it

I've thought about it for years. But, I do have some first hand experience. My uncle has 8 Chevy trucks, some locked, some not. And you can feel the difference, I just don't know what causes it.

Holy switches Batman! Like your ashtray rock switches. I would like to do mine but my ashtray is where I put all my change for the Turnpike's.
