|BigGreenMonster||I have been beating the piss out of... Well, when I wheeled... Spools front and rear. I run 22r/duels/5.29's and 42's. I do not see the spool breaking anything a regular locker would not. Having said that, I plan to put a Yukon locker up front because it is a bitch to turn. They are tough, but unless you have full hydro it is a bitch|

|green97tj||Ordered a 30 spline today. I thought about ordering one of the used cardan Joints they have just in case I need a xtra one. But I didn’t. Thanks for all the great info in this thread. I will keep it updated with my results of the new shaft|
|03-15-2020 07:45 PM|
Replaced it with a Marlin 30 spline unit.

|green97tj||Maybe that was my noise and not the driveshaft.|

|green97tj||Wow, is that the factory shaft? What did you replace it with? I tried to post a picture of mine but I couldn’t figure it out|
|03-14-2020 08:49 PM|
I only found it because I was doing something and happened to turn the front drive shaft and noticed it wobbling.

|green97tj||Took my buddy to the trail today so he could watch me climb a rock hopping he could see where my noise was coming from. He said it was definitely the cardan joint. It was moving up and down. About 2 seconds later the front output shaft snap. Guess I found the issue.|

|hodgiemoto||My truck would do this whenever the transfer case mounting bolts would get loose. Only did it going up hill under load bouncing around. It would hit on either the horse collar or the cab, don't quite remember. Check your transfer case mounts. May or may not be the problem, just something to check. good luck.|

|green97tj||I thinking cv joint is toast. I had slack in it, put the grease to it and that took up most of the slack. Went to the trail and no noise for about 5mins. Then started thumping. In 4wd with hubs not locked no noise, hubs lock with transfer in 2wd no noise. Either or both hubs locked in makes noise.|

|green97tj||Got spartan in. Everything new from one end to other except lockouts. Now in 4wd under load I hear “ thump thump thump “ up hill. Down hill no noise, hubs locked in with transfer in 2wd no noise either. Can’t figure it out|

this thread is linked from the other thread, it has more and better pictures of the differential, with holes cut in it to see, with gears attached and such
|02-08-2020 10:08 AM|
Great thread above. thanks
I will study it and take note
|02-08-2020 09:50 AM|
picture thread, still have all the stuff except for the 8" axle
the issue was that a load bolt would have to be set at an angle to catch the side of the gear, there isn't much space between the edges of the carrier ring gear bolts and the edge of the gear itself. different gear sets use different angles.
|02-08-2020 09:44 AM|
I tore in to one and marked it all up. can't remember if it was a space issue or what but it seems like load bolting was awkward.
|02-08-2020 09:26 AM|
Thin machined web and holes too boot.
Load bolt's work and I am surprised more people don't do this mod themselves.
Lincoln locker best bet...

Dang, I guess part of it depends on the condition of the v6 carrier. I was skeptical of reusing the factory side gears at first too, but a plethora of 3rd gen 4runners in the pull-a-part kept a good supply of $50 complete 3rd members to mix and match parts from. Broke a few axle shafts (rear and 30 spline Longs) with this setup.
Basically every 4cyl lunchbox locker Iíve put in came back with a busted center pin at some point (sometimes after breaking an axle shaft or 2)
