    On a fulltime D60, would it be possible to run safely without the internal hub locking parts and pieces? It would be a poor mans manual locker until I can afford the real deal. When I wanna wheel it I have to install the parts and pieces before I go. My intent here is not to drive the internals while in "daily driver" mode and save a bit on MPG /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif . This is on a K5 with a 208.

    Yeah, you can run with the drive flange, spacer, spring and snap rings out without any problems. The only problem I can think of is that maybe over a period of time the cap might lose its tight fit so be careful of that, otherwise go for it!
