I've searched and found alot of guys using these Spartan locker's in import's and having somewhat mixed feedback. My Chebbie w/ 35/15 SX's is getting 4.56's and lockers after the first of the year. Just want to know if anyone is using these locker's in D44 or 12 bolts and have had good luck with them. The price is reasonable, and that makes me skeptical. Is this a pay for what you get, or are they good lockers?

My front D44 Spartan(35's/4.88's) has survived stock axle breakage and a 3rd set of Warn lockouts breakage. I'd say it's good.

Twin stick the tcase so you can shift the front axle out of gear if you do it.

My spartan has help up for two years. It doesnt like to unlock when the tires are turned in the front.:smokin:

All and all, if I was to do it again, I would run a spartan. ARB is my first choice but I cannot justify that much $ right now.

I get the same thing...or GOT the same thing. After busting Warn hubs I went to drive flanges and would get the bind up/BANG when reversing from a parking spot, turning the wheels while not moving, then going forward. That's how i'd duplicate it, anyway.

I switched back to the Warns after warranty replacement....but busted another passenger side. I just left the drivers side lockout on, and put the flange back on the other side and said F-it. Sooo.....WHEN the drivers side hub explodes, i'll put the drive flange back on and just deal with it. It's not that bad.

Stop wheeling in the parking lot :laughing:
I use my twin stick to move when on the trail. when the front end is locked up and I need to make a tight turn, I just pop the front out of gear and turn. Lock the front back in and your good to go. (same concept as an ARB, turn the switch off when you want and turn it back on when you need it.

In the rear, I have a friend with an aussie and he does fine with it, With mine in the front, I need to be carefule and pick different lines because I need to turn a little bit wider. Still like it though.
