    Nope, no noise, no work, no good.

    In my previous 14FF I thought the locker was making noise, but it turned out to be a combination of worn out u-joints and my steady bearing..

    If you're hearing the noise when going in a straight line, then it's very unlikely to be the gov-loc that you're hearing. It's internals only spin when the tires are rotating at different speeds.
