down here a Aussie or lockrite is fine in the front ..we don't get a lot of snow...if you DD in Kelowna in the winter, a lot of people don't like a ratchet style in the front ...so u may want a selectable...I run aussie in snow /rain /dry whatever doesn't bother me but some it does

depends on what you want t o spend if I had the money I would go arb but lock rite in the rear is good, I wouldn't put one in the front unless you have a steel housing then I would do arb .front diff housings are aluminum and cant take the abuse

thanks for the input ,
not too concerned with the front right now,gonna put one in the rear tho
$1100 bucks vs $400 ,arb would probably outlast the rest of my truck
hmmmmmm looks like the lockright might b the way

For a sidekick perhaps something like this... (if a guy could get past the fact they are made in China...)

It's been a couple years since I looked into these. They now have a sexy website (compared to what they had) less than half the price of an ARB The Australians seemed to think they worked ok at that time...
Below is the price for an air locker in a samurai. (I never did get it...)

I wouldn't bother with any lunch box locker in a sidekick.

I had one in mine and it broke after a month. The gears are just too small in there to be strong enough for 32" swampers and some low range reduction.

I broke it and welded it all solid and it was good for 3 years till i sold it

yeah the locker would cost more than the truck itself. im probably only going to run 31" all terrains
is a spool a good idea?
or just hit it with the miller?

I ran a Lockright in the rear diff. of my Samurai for a couple of years until I sold the truck. It was a daily driver as well as a weekend wheeler and I never broke anything other than U-joints. You do have to get used to driving with one on the streets though. If you hit the gas at the wrong time in a corner it'll bang as it locks up and give you a little jolt. They also click as you turn corners but that's easy to live with once you realize how much better it performs off road.
