    Hey, I am looking at installing a detroit locker in my 14 bolt full floater. Are the case half bolts left hand thread like the bolts for the ring gear? It would suck to snap off a bolt because I went the wrong way. I did a search and found nothing. The locker install instructions do not say if they are left hand thread. Thanks for the help.

    I don't remeber which way they thread out. I just put the air gun in R and blasted them out.

    They are RH thread on the 14FF . Don't worry about snapping a bolt just by hitting it quickly the wrong direction with an pnuematic gun - those are some stout bolts on the FF carrier.
