Detroit Locker

For no-holds-barred traction, we pulled the Dana 70 apart and installed a Detroit Locker by Eaton. Perhaps the easiest locker install ever, we simply pulled the shafts, popped off the diff cover, and pried out the carrier assembly. After removing the eight bolts holding the case halves together, the stock four-pinion spider gear assembly is replaced with the Detroit Locker. Once the case halves are bolted back together, the wing nut holding the Detroit together is removed and the axle is reassembled.
