doubt it, never heard that one b4. Not saying it cant be done, but never heard of it on the cruiser websites. Go an air locker from ARB, dont do the autolockers as i had some in a 60 before. :-(

Hi Offie
I bought a locrite to fit in a factory lsd. (There are two types and this one is cheaper.) When taking off the steering wheel needed to be corrected one way, change gear, and the steering would go the otherway.
It was dangerous, the locrite locked into the side gears of the cruiser diff and there wasnt enough of them to ensure both axles would be locked when the power was put down.
It went in the front not long after. I then found that when i wanted to select 4wd and turn a corner it was too hard to turn. Ended up locking the rear air locker (now) and driving with the front locked but in 2wd until i needed the 4.
Once, was in 4wd and powered after a turn, the steering wheel snapped out of my hands and i ripped bark off a tree with the bullbar/siderail.
Awsome traction, but buy airlockers and stay in control.

Hi Guy's, reading through here Doser mentioned Cruiser web sites. I haven't been able to find any can someone please help? I also have a 60 series any infomation to help keep it going as well as it is for as long as posible. For economic reasons I wont be replacing it for awhile it's a good one and I'd like to keep it that way.

I had a white factory turbo 60 series and still the best 4wd I have owned A friend of mine runs a LSD in the front of his cruiser ute with no real problems. This is probably the most economical way to go. Cheers RobCairns Offroad Training & Tours
