    I just got my jimmygoing again. Put 14 bolt with arb in the rear and a arb also in the front 10 bolt. The problem is the front seems really hard to get unlocked .After the button is pushed you here a release of air which makes you think it is unlocked, but if you move back and forth alot or if you re-engage it and realese it again it'll unlock eventually. Any suggestions?

    The diffs don't just unlock instantly after you release the air from them. If things are in a bit of a bind you will need to get them out of that bind to get the ARB to release.
    I have to back up with mine sometimes to get it to unlock.

    ditto. the rear seems to unlock easy, but the front binds up a bit more. i've never tried backing up, i just make a turn or two and its unhooked. seems to stick more in colder weather.

    how far do you usually have to back. sometimes that seems to work for me, but sometimes it does'nt. Do these things have to break in or something.maybe it'll get wear in a little.

    turning doesnt seem to make any difference at all.
