    HI, Im thinking of getting used Dana-Spicer lockers for my rear axle (GM 12 BLT) and front Locking Hubs. Its a daily driven.My question is should I get the lockers for the front axle or the rear?
    Thanks for the info!

    it depends on what you are going to be running with the vehicle...in my opinion(what i actually did) go with a locker in the rear and see how that works for you...then decide on a locker for the front or not...in my case i will be adding a locker for the front

    I cant think of any lockers made by dana spicer.
    lockers are good in the front and rear.
    a limited slip will sometimes work, they seem to slip when you really need them to limit, but a locker will always work

    Go with a detroit locker or equivalent in the rear. If it is not enough then get a selectable locker like an Ox Locker in front. A front locker can be down right dangerous in ice. There are also times you may want to have the front end open in the rocks, like when you are making a very tight turn in a small amount of space.
