Stock vs. Lock-Rite side gears

Got my ring gear mounted to a new/used carrier as i was not sure the old one was too good anymore.
So, I was looking at the lock-Rite side gears and a stock side gear.

The stock side gears have 1/8th of an inch more spline contact area. And, my breaks both happened at the edge of the gear.
Thus the breakage that wants to spread the carrier apart.

Any thoughts as to this being part of the reason for breakage?

Here are the two axels.

I fixed a buddies broken rear awhile back and his was broken so clean it looked like it was cut on a lathe.

Most broken shafts I've seen look more like yours.

I doubt the 1/8th inch makes that much difference.

Good call on getting another carrier!

Hey Cory,

I don't know if its the cause of the breakage, I doubt it. But anyway you should just weld up a carrier with stock side gears. I never liked a lockright in the rear, I tore one up within 2 trailrides. Welded or Detroit for reliability of the locker.

IMO i dont think 1/8 of an inch is gana make that big of a diffrence. I would also have to agree that detroit or welded is the way to go. Not that i dont like the lockright but i just dont think it will hold up to the abuse u r givin it offroad.

And if u do decide to weld it up then put me second in line for the lockright! I dont have much cash for a detroit and welded is too sloppy for daily driving.

Yea, I'm gonna weld it.
It will be totally rebuildable...
I just weld the side and spider gears so that they can only move in one grove each. That way everything can be disassembled and the metat in the carrier is not altered at all.

AND, the clean break on a rear was on your old truck Reuben

Funny, I never broke a rear. Guess I broke other stuff before the rear busted. I knew I kept rear spares with that rig for a reason, hope he had them along.

How is that thing be doing for Dave? I miss that rig , and need to get mine done.
