my buddy just installed a lockright in the front.now, it keeps breaking axels(rh side).not even wheeling hard.we've replaced all a-arms bushings,all ball joints,rack bushings.
he has a fabtech/fox coilover and the right side knuckle seems to hit on the spring more than the left does.
any help would be appreciated.

Pretty common with a front locker in a IFS Taco..There's no where for the load to go when one wheel stops or slows down, unlike an open diff where the load transfers to the other side..That's the number one reason I'm still "open" in the front..

Does seem odd if he's not doing much huh?? What about a bad wheel brg on that side?? Do you know if the rt wheel spins freely jacked up? Just a thought

36's are the problem, a tire that size puts a lot of stress on the CV's. I'm locked in the front with 33's and haven't had a problem and mine gets wheeled quite often.

Definatly a good point..The ones breaking them I was speaking about are both on 35's..Although...breaking them doing virtually nothing is a little odd..

I'd check the wheel bearings? the rotors aren't warped and causing the brakes to grip when he's in a situation to cause more stress on the cv? Is he trying to turn at the same time? Seems odd that it's always the same side...

It is sounding like something is bent and that could be causing undo stress on the cv? Wait... Why are the knuckles hitting on the spring? I don't remember that ever happening on my truck...

I had the same problem...turn out to be a bad bushing on the right side diff. bracket. It was cuasing the right side to be at greater angle. hope it helps
