    My buddy(poor dude) has a bronco from 87 and he wants to put a locker in the front, he has auto hubs and he wants to keep the auto hubs(don't ask me why). My question is, when in 2 wheel drive will he feel the locker in the front, will it affect steering?

    running a locker...and the stock auto hubs....tell him to buy some warn premiums or any kind of manual hub....cuz those auto hubs break easily enough WITHOUT a locker...toss a locker in the mix and there as good as toast....Course if hes too stuborn to buy them...you should and when he busts them up on the trail, sell him yers for heafty markup (call it stupidity tax /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif) /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    As long as the hubs are unlocked, the locker can't be felt. The front differential isn't even connected to the wheels.

    As for strength, that is another issue...
