lock rights are 1/4 of the price because there 1/4 of the product the cross pins on them seem to snap fairly easily an aussie locker is a better alternative but still not a detroit

whats fairly easy? a few times a year,, or evry wheelin trip? i ran 4:10's and 33's for 4 years and never blew a Birf so i figure u have a pretty good understanding on how to drive...I also understand you get what you pay for.. How acessable are rebuild kit's for the pins?

thanx for the feed back

33's and 4:10's with open diffs aint gonna break any birfs unless your a complete moron.

if your going with 35's go with 4:88. In my opinion its a better match for 35's.


Lockrights are junk. get used to banging and clanging constantly on or off road. I've run welded diffs for 4 years. never broke any diffs. always acts the same and doesnt make any noise. I wouldnt pay for any locker unless its selectable, or the good detroits

the pin kits are easy to get and redly avalible so the manufacture knows its a problem and its a pain in the ass to change them my buddy was killing a set every 3-4months in a suzuki on 34's with toy diffs
im going to agree also with the 4:88's for general use with a 35-36 5:13's are nice in the trails tho

i will end up with 38's and longs. but my motor is pretty tired so as i build the new one.. im thinkin the 35 5.29 should be ok.. I just got a VW TDi so the yota is pretty much just for playin now.

also my 33" with 4:10's i could seldomly run in 4hi.

thanx for the info.

My opinion, Lock Rights are CRAP! They are unreliable, if you wheel in your driveway you have a nice sense of security because your already home. When your hours from home, in the bush, I want something that I can depend on. I've changed a few out for people because they have failed. Just wait till that pin fails and pieces chunk off into the gears and wreck them too, now you would have to spend even more replacing them a second time, then if you were to save up and put a quality locker in the first time. Just to reiterate, I have never seen one ever not break, it just takes time.

Weld or spool the rear man. I don't know what you have against it, but youi'll never go back. Plus its the cheapest way to lock those diffs.[36]

I wouldn't trust them. The guys at BCC has one that cracked in to and the truck only had 35s:eek: If its mostly off road weld it or spool it and get a arb for the front.

So I was thinking of a locker, but after reading this, looks like I will weld the rear. [36] Is it best to weld the front at the same time? :dontknow: I have a 90 4runner V6 Auto.
Also anybody suggest a reputable shop to do a suspension lift?:confused0006: We are in Maple Ridge area

Get a buddy and just do it yourself, youll save a ton of money and in the future if you ever get anything else YOU can do the lift !

Cool, but skip the 35's. Some 37's will be better suited to the 5.29's and they will kick mo ass[36] Get er done.

I run 35" tires, with 5.29 gears and a lock-rite in the back of my 85 TOYOTA. great set-up over-all, lots of power for highway hills, and nice and slow in the bush. Would like to try a set of 37" tires and see if the truck can still do 90 up black mountain hill.
