    I was wanting to know if there was any cons to putting a True Trac in my front diff i have manuel locking hubs so i figured that it would only be engaed when the hubs were locked but some guy on here said that some locjers make it hard to steer with them in the fron any ideas???

    a true trac is not a true locker it is a gear posi- limited slip- so no clutches , you will be fine , but he is right if u put say a detroit locker "no spin" in it ....

    WHATS WRONG WITH A 305 ?

    I think the only problem you'll have is that it's not a real locker. But you can get a true-trac to really hook up if you just tap the brake a little when it's spinning.
    Otherwise, you shouldn't see any other drawbacks. You may notice some handling problems on slick roads (snow and ice) if you're getting a lot of wheelspin. Otherwise it'll be mostly invisible.
