steering with welded rockwells

I have a question for all that has welded rock front diffs. How bad is the steering with front diff welded? I was thinking of just welding them both up to save some cash.

My last rig had front and rear steer with the rear welded and front locked. I never had a problem with steering the rear other then returning to center. I am putting 2 fronts under my S10 this weekend and will also be welding them both.

A Welded front will work good for mud riding, but i'd imagine it would be a PITA crawling.....................

I don't do mud but at the same time I don't do trail riding. That's what little jeeps like my old ladies is for. I will give ride river and memphis a call.

If I welded the front and didn't like. I'm assuming I can take out the spider gears and put in a locker, if I don't weld them to the case?

As long as you weld just the spiders together. Dont weld it to the carrier like alot of people do. On my rear, i just tack welded the spiders through the little windows, then pulled it apart to finish it up........................

I am welded front and rear with 49's. I have a twin sticked 205 so I just drive around in front wheel drive all the time and that helps out A LOT!!

I'm welded front and rear as well but I've got 4wheel steer. Twin stickin my 205 and driving in front wheel drive also mad it a lot easier.

When I was welded front and back with out 4 wheel steer and before the twin stick it brought the suck big time on the tight trails.
