Well you had me scratching my head with this one, what on earth is an "arb". At first I thought maybe the C on your keyboard was sticking and you meant "carb". However you refer to an AMC20 which is an axle so you are referring to a ARB air locker?

There is an o ring seal in the housing that you will want to replace as a matter of course and of course the nylon air line and fittings up to your compressor. The relay and solenoids and wiring kit should be good to go and the locker itself is pretty reliable.

If its like the ARB for my dana 44 then you should look into a set of misc. shims and a new bearing for the bigger side. These were specialized parts I needed for my install that weren't available at just any store. I ended up getting an assortment of shims from a mechanic that installed them so its worth asking those guys as well.

They do make one for the AMC20, it is around $1,000 plus the compressor. Plenty of places stock spares and arbusa would be a good place for technical advice.

ARB changed the bulkhead fitting where it goes through the axle housing to a different design. It would be worth your while to upgrade this ARB to that type of fitting.

Call ARB's customer support line. They are extremely helpful and can make the proper recommendations and send the right parts.
