1956 Jeep Cj 5 Front Axle Apart

Once we got the Powertrax No-Slip out of the rear axle we pulled the front differential and installed the Powertrax Lock-Right from West Coast Differentials in our Jeep’s high-pinion Dana 30 with 4.10 gears (PN 2210, $310.00). Installation was simple other than messing with pulling the front carrier and having to remove the ring gear. That’s a bit of a pain, but it’s still easier than installing a full-carrier locker, which would require shimming to adjust the backlash and ring gear pattern. Again, we used that thick grease to help hold parts in place during installation.
