The only prob I see w/ locking the front axle is you will always be pushing it.  I did that w/ a GWag once and regretted it.  It did work though, but turning sucked even in 2wd.

I can use a flat rate box (USPS) for shipping if you want some.  What ever that comes to

No worries if you have a better plan, was just a thought that popped in the noggin

I did a little looking into thtis myself when i was farting around with the vacuum system on my 84. Fed up with not enough vacuum and weak pots and such.

I haven't tried it yet, but I'm think door lock actuators might be the ticket. They are strong enough to engage the transfer case while being slow enough not to break anything.

My 84 was locked up in the front axle since I got it almost 10yrs ago. It drives like/as it should.

It should make no diference to the handling of the car. Eagles even come stock with the front diff locked in. 80's and some early 81's were full time 4X4 and it was only from 81 to 84 or 85 that you could get an eagle with an unlocking front diff. Everything beyond 84/85 has a locked in diff and it dosen't effect the handling or turning of the car.

The gwag you used must of had some sort of LSD on the front for it to be difficult to turn.

Thanks again GRONK. I'll send a few dollars your way! :occasion14:

Door lock actuators are another good idea. I wonder about them being sealed though. I might get one of those from a junker to try out.

Lots of ideas, now all I need is the time!
