well... didn't take me long. i've blown my detroit. goin to the shop to find just WHAT is actually broken..

when i go in a straight line, all i can hear is the locker banging like i'm goin around a corner too hard. i think i have razored the splines on the axle, or broken a pin... anyone else got some ideas?

Id have a hard time believing its a detroit,,, they can take a huge amount of abuse ----ezlocker or real detroit??


a buddy of mine blew up a detoit (side gears) but he was doing wheelies with his jeep on the pavement with new 33 inch bfg mud tires ----he had a 401 motor in it -----------------Yes I know -----IDIOT ----------but thats the only time Iver have heard of a detoit failing --Im sure it happens but not very common ----Bruce

sounds like an ez-locker problem to me not a full carrier detroit-locker , They are almost indestuctable.

so that is why a full case detroit is a little more expensive

E-Z locks are crap all thay do is break.they say it will handle up to a 33" tire. There full of shit.

Bad news they wont warranty anything
