Lockout spring search

Searching for lockout hub parts- Is there a vendor that sells parts for stock lockouts on a '82 Scrambler with the Dana 30 axle? The PO, or whoever, did not put the spring back in when it was last serviced. All I can find is the complete assembly when all I really need is the spring! The spring for the driver side is there and the passenger side is MIA. This is slowing my resto down to a crawl. Thanks for any info anyone can provide!

i really dont think parts are available, most people i know just replace them when they fail or in your case, are missing parts.

any d30 out of any cj from 82-86 will be the same as yours. you could get the hubs for a pre 82 and switch to 6 bolt hubs (stronger)

heres a link of different aftermarket ones http://www.jeep4x4center.com/jeep-hubs/locking-cj5-cj7-cj8.htm

i personally would go with the superwinch, as they are only 1/4 turn to engage/disengage

I have some spare parts.....There are two springs in each lockout. Which one do you need, the thicker one inside the shell/dial or the thinner one by the base/sliding ring?

TheRyans33- Thanks for the info and the link! I really appreciate it. Also, let me thank you for your military service to our country. Alot is owed to people who keep watch on the wall that seperates freedom from tyranny.

only in a jeep cj-I was premature in diagnosing the number of missing springs. I get alot of exercise by jumping to conclusions. After further disassembly, I find that I need one thicker spring and 2 thinner springs. I'll PM you to discuss price and shipping arrangements. Thanks for your answer to my inquiry
