    I have one in the front and rear of my K5. The rear usually bangs very loudly occasionally. I usually watch for an axle to spit out the side when it does it, but thats just the characteristics of the Lock Rite. I have wheeled with mine for 2 years without problems. I run 37" Boggers with mine and have been to several pretty tough areas to wheel. I am typically a crawler and usually do not allow my vechicle to "hop" or "bounce" when it starts to spin. This is usually when you start breaking parts.

    i have one up front mine never used to really pop hard till just a couple months ago and man does that thing pop my tire even jurks a bit (this happens only when i turn). It all started after poping my front axle shaft (going air born and land on one tire) so im still not sure if thats norm or not it works fine when crawling up rocks ect.

    Not to worry,it will do that.The 35's will be fine,I used a lockrite with 39's and had no problem.I actually liked all the noise,esp when all the people looked at you as the truck sounded like it was blowing up.It is a much better sound than the Hondas that sound like a bee in heat.
