ok he seem to be going over and over the same subject here .

There is 2 lock rite type diff locks , the lokker from Adelaide , and the lock right from Melbourne , there are also detroit locker and soft lockers ,

I have a Lokker in the rear of my 80 , and am very happy with its performance , it is noisy on turns , but I am use to it . I wouldnt fit one on the front , because I want the option of turning it off for steering .
I only fitted it in the rear due to the fact Landcruisers have the worst LSD known to man . and I like both wheels working on dirt road , unlike the Air locker that works as a open diff when off . The lockright works on a similar principle , I heard that htey are noisier , but this is only what I have been told . They are also twice the price . The experience I had with a detroit was not good , they work as a open diff and engadge when they sence slip , I fitted one in a friends Patrol and we both hated it , it engadges sometimes on asfelt when going around sweeping bends , and make driving dangerous on wet roads . This our experience I hope it is some help .Venus Bay

You've got the best LSD going so I'd put one in the front were I in your position.
Steering is only affected (slightly) when hubs are engaged.
I wouldn't be without one in the front of my bus.Allyn

Gday mate Ive Got one in the rear of my Gu and have found no probs as yet 90,000 kliks. It makes the steering a little heavy when locked up but this is no drama with poer steering. But in the rear I do not know.
