I have a similar noise in my front axle, I think its the used gear set I put in. Just a little noisy at neutral on the coast side of the gears.
Why not at least take the locker apart and see if there is something wrong inside it before dropping the $7-900 plus what ever it costs to add an arb pump to move the 90 psi those bad boys need?Stinger said:Put it back on jack stands and in 6th gear with tires off noise is barley audible. Slight load with park brake causes noise to come back with a vengeance. My guess is that piece of crap DC/Fugi locker has given up. Can't tow it to Oregon for annual salmon fishing trip but just as soon as I get back and ARB is going in there!
Will let you know if he problem is solved!
He is not nasty at all! Has just had about 50 bad hands dealt to him in a row. I have similar luck, just not related to all of the same things. If, it failed from anything but, stupidity then, built it better.Stinger said:.........Not to be nasty because I do appreciate your comment, but when factory gives up, factory does NOT go back in!
Wow, I may be on borrowed time for sure. (over 100K) Glad I have plans for the 1 tons soon so I can forget about it. Not everyone wants to do that of coarse.Stinger said:44K on the meter and probably another 40k being flat towed.
