    I know the ring gears and carrier are the same size but I never see the 10b lockers listed as front or rear, I know the rear has C-clips so im notsure how the locker would work. But I need to know if the rear 10b locker will work up front.
    Thanks

    Yeah, if they are both 30 spline axles! Most 10 b fronts other than post 89 are 28 spline. Know what you have before you start.

    There are 30 spline rear axles too but they didn't start till 89 either. So if you have a 28 spline front then you probably have a 28 spline rear too.

    well crud, I found a guy that has 2 to bolts that have lockrites and detroit ez lockers in them but they are 30 spline since his truck is a 90', so it looks like ill be getting his axle shafts also :) The only thing I dont like about that is it might be harder to find 30 spline axles since they were only made for a few years. I guess if I cant find a spare axle I can just carry my 28 spline stuff and if I break one then I will just have to wheel open on 28 spline.

    This is the situation I'm in also. I'm having a hard time finding spare 30 front shafts.

    Ok I'm not even joking anymore. I have an '89 and a 10b front so if someone wants the shafts PM me and when I remove the shafts I'll make sure they're 30 spline and send 'em out.
