    I justed installed a no-spin in my H072. The truck has 4.56 gears and 35" ground hawgs. Is correct for the locker to ratchet when letting off the gas or just starting to coast? It also ratchets under very very light throttle.

    Yes. When you let off the gas going around a corner the dog-clutch for outside wheel overspeeds the driver in the carrier and it ratches.

    You will notice that slow-speed no-throttle turns and parking lot maneuvers will make a racket once in a while. And of course all the tire-chirping when you are making turns with the throttle!

    Is this your first locker? Be careful with it until you are used to how it handles.
