    Default rickyr : Detroit for front

    Detroit for front
    Post by rickyr on Nov 22, 2006, 12:08pm

    I have had my old D-60 locker sitting around for 3 years just collecting dust. I have renewed my interest in my M-715 lately, and want to install this locker.
    I originally had it in the rear of my CJ-7, but had to go to 35 spline spool and axles, since the 30 spline wasn't strong enough.
    It is a 4.10 carrier size, but I know that I can get a spacer and bolt set to compensate for the difference in ring gear thickness.
    My question is, will this 30 spline locker work in my front?
    Thanks, Ricky

    awful harsh setup. power lock or trac lock is far better in my opinion.

    I dont know if it will work, but I've had Detroits front and back on mine for a few years and it works very well in the snow, mud, Ice just be carefull around corners and its fine. I do have power steering so thats not an issue.

    Thanks for the info, so I guess it is the same carrier????
    Yes, I do have locking hubs and power steering. I am used to lockers and their ill manners on the street.
    We do have lots of mud and very little snow or ice.
    I got the rear locker Monday, so I now have a weekend project when it quits raining..
    Have a great Turkey Day.
