    make sure that you do not put the thrust washers back in!!! I put mine back in and it destroyed the locker in about 5000 miles.

    Ya here is some good advice. Once you use it and see how well it works get a crowbar out to wipe the grin off your face.[​IMG] Also remember that your rear will seem sloppy and it will make some noise with the locker but that is normal with a detroit.

    I have no advise.
    But I just wanted to say I like your web site.
    Your ford tribute has brought many laughs to this board.
    Blazers, Fishing, and Huntin. Life just doesn't get any better.than that.

    Also when going around wet corners on the highway coast around them, they like to stay locked under power. Use good quality oil, I used synthetics, but conventional is good. and make sure the inside of the pumkin is clean. Otherwise it pretty straight foward, read Detroits paper work.
