well i just put one in yesterday. install was easy. i havent yet tested it out but i will let you know once i do.

no noise on the street at all so far and feels just like stock. no pulling around corners or anything.

everyone keeps saying go for the aussie locker, i undestand it has proven itself but the spartsan is the SAME quality and is way easier to install. it too has held up very good so far according to all the reviews i have read.

i think the aussie is awesome but i think people should also step outside of the norm and try a new product that has good reviews.

thats what i did.

A little easier than lockrite on the install (per a friend that has 2 lockrites). Only noise is hard turns going slow in a parking lot otherwise no noise. I have not ran it offroad so havent experienced the difference with a locker. Im running it on the front 07 JK unlimited D30. Price much better that the other brands.

I've installed 1 of each style, both work fine. IMO the Spartan locker is better built... no chance in hell for the springs/pins to potentially pop out and the locker to fail. The Spartan is very well built and is just a more user friendly design IMO.

with the aussie you have to try to hold all 4 little tiny springs with your hands while putting it into the carrier. pretty difficult when you have big hands.

the spartan not only has little spring holders but it uses removable "pins" to hold the springs while installing into carrier
