Do you have to reset the backlash with this.

Reinstall the shims exactly as they came out and there is no need to worry about the backlash if it was correct to begin with.

There's a couple questions that went unanswered in this thread and I was wondering the same kinds of things.

1. What is the difference between the Lock Right and No-Slip? I thought the No-Slip was a limited slip-like product while the Lock Right is an auto locker. But this whole business of no clutches and %100 lock up for the No-Slip makes me wonder...

2. How does the No-Slip handle up front in the snow/ice?

I certainly would not have installed that locker if it were my Dana 35c axle. Their axle shafts can break with bigger tires even without a locker but with a locker it's only a matter of time.

I just ordered my lock right locker tonight. The install has me worried but this thread has helped me put my mind at ease a little.

X2 (or X3 actually), how is it on roads with ice and snow?

Keep it in 2wd when it's icy & it will be fine. Shifting into 4x4 will lock the front locker up hard enough that it will cause understeer during a turn on an icy or otherwise slick surface.

Thanks for the insight, Jerry. I was a couple clicks away from ordering a Powertrax for my D35....

Help - I think I made a boo-boo with my locker install

I read in this thread -

make sure to note the original location of the carrier and ring gear. I used a zip tie on both the carrier and the ring to make sure that the ring gear didnt get clocked.

What happens if my carrier and ring "got clocked"?
Also what should be the torque spec for the unit bearings and ring gear?

Not clear on one thing.
Do they tear up the 27 splines, or snap somewhere on the shaft?
What I'm relly asking is will the a locker and 33" tires be Ok on a D35 with Superior 27 spline shafts?
Thought I read to stay with 27 splines and be able to use factorys as spares??
