Detroit locker in front? And regear?
I am installing a super 35 in my YJ and going to regear while I am at it. I have a manual with 35's. I see most of you guys are recommending 4.88's? So while I am in the front (Dana 30) I am also going to upgrade the axle shafts and carrier. Does anyone run a Detroit locker in the front? Opinions??
putting a detroit in the front affects your turning radius tremedously while you are in 4x4. most guys run a limited slip or a selecatable in the front. while a detroit locker is fantastic in the rear, it has drawbacks in the front. I would suggest a truetrac in the front.
Locked @ both ends

Holy crap! Everyone has much different views on this! I have to buy a new carrier to hold the 4.88's im installing so the aussie is out. The only reason I am looking at the detroit is because it IS the carrier. I'm ditching the disconnect on the axle and installing a one piece axle so that shouldnt be a factor. I just want to be sure that on the street in 2wd it will cause no problems?????????????
