So I split ny spider gears, sheared the pin, cleaned out my ring and pinion, in my dana 30 front axle. I replaced the lock rite limited slip with a Detroit Trutrac, and the ring and pinion with geniune gear. Since thats been done I have had a vibration that has gotten worse, and my 4wd will not work. The light comes on that says its engaged but I found mylef stuck in the mud and only spinning the two rear tires. So first thing i pulled off the acctuator fork assembly or what ever its called and the fork is moving so that has its vacum. the only thing that i noticed that was odd was that to get the collar to aligine on the two axle safts i had to lift the passenger side tire and turn it, but shouldn't that happen on its own if i jsut roll forward. i basically spent the day today going through it and found that it can all be done by hand but doesn't seem to happen on its own. Any body with any ideas.

go buy a posi-lok for your vacuum disconnect. much more reliable. as far as the gears id get them checked out. genuine gear is notorious for bad gear noise and horrible install's. they basically just pick a random ring & pinion and throw them into a box together. precision gear and dana spicer gears are much better.

Rather than buying a posi-lok, check out this site http://home.earthlink.net/~stevenschreiber/cabledis.htm It provides step by step instructions on how to make your own posi-lok and install it. If you follow the parts list that is given on the site, it will cost you about $20 for a "posi-lok". I did this a few months ago and have not had any problems with it.

I've been planning on doing that homemade posi-lock. I have all the hardware, but it's been to damn cold. $20 or $200 it wasn't a hard decision for me.
