Lockrite for FF

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Jul 9, 2001.

    Powertrax makes a lockrite for the FF for only $250. anyone running this or know anything good or bad about it? it's $75 cheeper than the detroit soft locker.

    Them lunch box locker bust all the time. You will not break a Detroit and an Detroit for a 14 installs in the stock carrier so it doesn't require setting up gears. It's not much harder to install than the lockgripe.

    Just to add one thing to Grim's post, it only cost around $300 depending on where you buy. Sothat isn't much more than the lockrite...

    If I had a 14 bolt I would pay the extra for the Detroit .If the lockright comes apart it could ruin your gears and bearings.How often do you hear of a Detroit failing?

  6. as far as i know they don't make a spool for the FF. if you know of a place that does, hook me up!!!

    thanks for the responses, guys. i was planning on the detroit but then i saw the lockrite for less. just trying to save a buck or two. this probably isn't the place to skimp though.

    I say weld it. I just got my 14 bolt in last week and have put over 600 miles on it this weekend. The chirping is only noticeable around very sharp turns and it has much better road manners than a locker. The best part is it was 10 bucks for a buddy to weld it at his work.
