    Okay, i just did that because no one looks at post about 10 bolts.

    Will a 10 bolt gov lock rear fit in the front??

    thanks

    all i have to say is dont use a gov-lock. If you have one in the rear take it out. All they will do is shred your gears. I have personally had seen my buddies explode. They dont work correctly and are a weak spot. To further enhance my point Petersons Four Wheel drive was doing a special on axles and said to avoid the 10-bolts with gov-locks. Take it out save up and get a good locker. Save your self the shrapnel of gear teeth flying out your diff cover.

    10 bolt gov locks suck. They are weak and don't work very well. I detroyed mine with 32" tires and a stock 350. Just took off hard from a stop and it blew up. Save some cash and get a real LS or real locker. Not worth having to buy new gears and rebuild the axle when the govlock goes and possibly destroys other items.
