Hey all, new here, 1st post :)
Is there any advantage to running a locker up front insted of a spool?
Will the truck ('82 F150, TTB front end) turn any tighter with a locker insted of a spool?
I have used a spool or welded dif. in the back for years with an open diff. up front, but have decided that for my new trail toy I will step up to a locked front end too.

Steering effort is an issue, and yes, turning radius is affected. Much on here with this subject if you look hard enough.

nope, a few extra hundred dollars for a locker over a spool is just for those who have extra money they want to burn. selectable lockers arent any better either, those are just for people who want to burn their money even faster. :rolleyes:

Fuck no it doesnt.. It will be a ttb d44 which has the same everything as a solid 44 where it counts.. Flexin may suck but the locker will be fine. :p

:D with the money you would save welding the spool, you could get yourself a high pinion 60 and full hydro steering....then steering will be a-ok.
seriously you are going to get a flame fest for this, two pieces of advice, dish it back with some humor (don't be an ahole, or no one will help you) or just delete this thread and do a search ( i recommend the latter). there are more discussions on this in the archives than you have days to read about it. :flipoff2: oh and welcome to pirate

Get a 60.
