This would be fine if you have a selectable locker, but if you want to user a lockrite or Aussie locker, it will make steering tough.
What I did was to put a switch in line from the transfer case so that when I shifted into 4wd, I had the option of unlocking the driver side shaft so that turning would be easier. I had a lockright in my front and steering was real tough. When shifted in 4wd, I was actually running in 3wd until I flipped the switch and the ADD would lock the driver axle shaft and 4wd I went.
This was my way of making a somewhat selectable locker. I also have not ever had any issues with the vacuum silenoids so this worked great.
SuprWhiteTRD said:So with that switch installed, How does the auto locker behave around town?
SuprWhiteTRD said:So, the switch just determines if it is in 3wd or 4wd depending on the switch position while the transmission is in 4wd? Do I have this this right?
That is correct...SuprWhiteTRD said:So, the switch just determines if it is in 3wd or 4wd depending on the switch position while the transmission is in 4wd? Do I have this this right?
TBob said:the switch from the tcase tells the collar on the add diff to slide engaging the front diff. If you interupt that circut with a switch you can controll that.
Now that being said next time I'm gona :flamethro your ass if you DON"T search!
