Lokka differentials?

Does anyone have any experience using Lokka differentials? Are they a worthwhile product? How did installation go?

Installe one last night for a friend... Install went perfect...

Didn't make it out of the drive-way - 2 of the 4 pins sheared....

Friend contacted LOKKA today - they were REALY CRAPPY about warranty / refund / shipping a new one... Wanted him to send all parts back - THEN they would evaluate .. THEN determine if they would warranty - THEN he could wait on return shipping...

I could understand if this was a super high dollar assembly......

There is a guy selling new Lock-rites on ebay $240 shipped ... I would recommend staying away from LOKKA based on this experience...

I did a Google search on them one day, as I had never heard of them til someone on a local forum mentioned them. It says on their site that they made the for other labels, including Aussie...

Look at the last Question (Q22) on the FAQ page:

Your expectations are unreasonable. I don't know of any manufacturer that will send you a "hot spare" locker assembly. Auburn/Detroit sure won't, and those are the most super high dollar manual lockers out there AFAIK.

No offense intended, but if you weren't $%^ around and literally broke it slowly backing out the driveway, it sounds like an installation issue.
