What locker if any would you run

For you Toyota guys and gals what locker would you run and why?

I'm putting a set of toyota axles with 5.29 gears in a little Zuki and I can not make up my mind on the locker choice. I've alway had rockwells with welded diffs so I'm clueless. Haveing 4 wheel steer make up for the welded diffs.

Yes, I've searched on here first

Here is what my plans are

Zuki
1.3 power house
4.89:1 transfere case
Toyota axle 5.29
36" to 38" tires
front coils
rear air shocks
rear spool
???? front locker
Maybe propane in the future

Well if you are gonna spool, save the coin and weld it up. I am gonna be running welded front and rear.....cause I am CHEAP. All the other Ftoy guys are running ARB rear and Detroit front. Or preferably ARB front and ARB rear. I highly doubt my Yotas will ever spin an ARB.....again cause I am cheap.

I'm with ya on the cheap. How bad does the front end push when trying to going around a tight corner?

I just don't want to buy a locker and it not hold up. I dang sure don't want to buy an ARB but if that's the best choice I will.

Well that is just it, it is still being built. Fishy1 ran a welded rear and a Lockrite in the front when he had Yota axles and it did OK, certain places you would have to make a couple of stabs at it......but I think that was mostly his booty fabbed steering and no hydro assist. He has 60/14 bolt now welded both ends, good high steer and hydro assist and it does fine. I would try welding it first. Yota 3rds are CHEAP if you dont like it. Change it later.

A Aussie locker from what I hear is the best lunch box locker out their. I run a Lockrite front and welded in the rear. I didn't have to mess with setting up gears with it.
Out back is just welded. Some will say to pull the ring gear and such. I just cleaned it good with brake cleaner and had a Club Member welded it up with a 220. Aside from welding the spider gears together. I then had the spider gears welded to the carrier. Of course their is no going back after that. It's been a few years now and still holding up. Some put plates in the middle...but I didn't.
one I found on the web.

Here is Johns welded rear.

Mike

You may want to look into Longfield axles. Having a welded front can break the stockers easy depending on tire size and use of the skinney pedal..

I dont know hardly anything about yota axles..but a buddy of mine running waggy D44s had spools front and rear..no bueno, you'd just plow when turning..i run a chromo spool rear, and a detroit front in my scout D44s and have no issues..though my left turning radius sucks and dont know why.

We were running welded front and rear but since we went to 37's we have ordered longfields and a locker for the front--detroit ez locker 4wheel parts $199- the rear now has a lockrite. I highly suggest this with the tire size you are running

I would go with a lockright myself. I have seen a lot of guys abuse them with no problems.

When ever I change my gears or I break the welded carriers/gears I will drop in an ARB. I had one on the M880 in the front and it sure made a helluva difference when turning tight corners, it was nice to turn it off with a flip of a switch. I hope these welded carriers hold together utnil I can order some Diamond axles front and rear to go full width, which will probably be about this time next year.

bigbroncojeff just gettin started
buddy ran a cheesy locker... uh i mean easy locker in the front of his yota on 36s for half a weekend before it gave it up on something that didn't look like it should have broken anything.... ive used 8.8, 44, and 9" aussies and have had no problems out of them and they also seem quieter than many peoples lockers

Why would you run a spool? Welding is the same thing but way cheaper. Unless you are just looking for temp fix so an not to waste the carrier. Yota 3rds are like $45 buck.

How is your rig lifted vs. how is your steering set up? My old Terra had the same issue and after some poking around the steering I discovered that the stock drag link(which is non-adjustable) had pulled the pitman arm over to the passenger side after I had installed a 4" SUA lift....I ditched the aftermarket pitman for the OEM piece and fabbed an adjustable draglink to allow the pitman to be recentered....viola', it steered left and right as it did stock...

yeah, I welded the front on my Terra as well, and every so often in the tighter trails I would have to unlock the hubs so I could steer..
