I am interested in a swap from my G80 to an Ox Locker. The ox locker website shows the GM 8.5". Does anyone know if the 8.5" parts interchange with our 8.6" parts?
Yes thats correct. I don't like the G80 because I have no true control when it locks up. Sometimes you don't want a locker off road. I have been scared a few times because the G80 decided it was time to engage. I gotta say that it does a good job, just not for me. The true trouble comes when you are going around the face of a muddy hill and have some wheel spin. In that scenario, hang on and pray!When disengaged, it's a open diff just like the G80, right? And when engaged it's like a spool (no diff)?
I didn't know you could rebuild a G80 into anything else! I hope to be done with the install by the end of the month, maybe first week of May. I will keep you posted if you can use it.yes, a true locker is good off road. a Eaton keeps both wheels locked
all the time, I have one in my GN, great for street and strip. nothing
like a Gov lock. yes they suck. mine seems to work ok at the track, both
wheels bite. but i am still going to replace it. prob a gear drive Grizzly posi.
when i put in the 3:73 gears this summer if i can find the extra money over
the Eaton unit. I am interested in your old Gov Lock, I can have it rebuilt into
an Eaton unit with extra HD locking springs.
