    Hi, I have a quick question regarding my factory gov-lock. Should I experience any handling characteristics with this diff as I would with a real locker? tires barking in slow turns etc. I just want to make sure it's not my new rear brakes mal-adjusted. Thanks!

    I have had two gov-locks on diferent vehicles. I never noticed them at all. Just like an open diff. O'course thats what makes them junk in my opinion, too much like an open diff![​IMG] Seriously tho you should'nt experience any on road quirks with the gov-lock.
