Rear locking hub question.

I've got a Detroit locker and Warn locking hubs. How bad is it to drive on the highway with one tire unlocked and one locked??


Don't hit kids, no seriously they have guns now.


Looking for rebuilt T-5 transmission.

I would tend to think that it would put lots of strain on the one drive axle, you might be fine if you're easy on it. But you do run the risk of breaking it.

Well I told my friend to lock the front hubs and one of his idiot friend messed with the rear hub and now it just spins and doesn't lock.

Just take it apart and have a look-see. There's not alot too them. You should be fine driving it, just be easy on it.

A lot of guys have problems with locking hubs on full floating rear axles. Most of them eventually go to drive plates to eliminate this.
