    OK this is whats going on, I just moved from the bay area to tucson. the whole way on the freeway my truck was bing jucked around. i think it was my locker. i wopuld hear a loud "CLANK" and my truck would jump to the right. sometimes it started to ratchet like the locker but really loud. could it be the locker disengaging and re-engadging? or could it be something upfront in the steering or front dif?

    Make sure you have the correct differential fluid in there. Also, was the locker set up right or did the "true dual man" do it? oh, yeah... what's "jucked"???

    Have been stuck (once) as of 8/12/00

    Could be the locker.Have you checked the fluid level?I like to use Lucas gear oil in my drivetrain.It quieted my lockers down.You can get it at Carquest.I would check this first and try it.If you have the same problem pull the cover and make sure there is nothing broken.Brady

    Re: Is it my locker????

    Hey what part of Tucson are you in? We should drive side by side and compare symptoms. Whenever I make a pair of right hand turns into my driveway my truck sounds like the power steering is going bad, but I think its the rear end. I'm near 22nd and Kolb.
