ok so i want a locker... tired of one tire spinning. imo open diifs are just trying to get u stuck by sending power to the wheel with the least amount of traction. so i was looking around and i found this http://www.shop.synergyoffroad.com/P...zer-PT1935.htm . so my question is will this fit my truck. the rear axle is a stock nonzr2 s10 axle with 4:10s. im just not to sure what my axle is... so will it fit if not i need to find another locker.
thanks in advanced

The powertrax locker will work, but I'm pretty sure you have a 7.625" rear end. I have a powertrax no slip traction system and it works great.

Do you want this for the front or rear? The one that you listed is for the front. These are very difficult to install in the front, but very easy to install in the rear. I've had one in the rear of my truck for about 140,000 miles and it works great. I never put one in the front because you can not unlock the front with one of these. It will turn the drive shaft at all times, even though the right axle is unlocked.

the locker is for a 7.2 thoe... will the lockers interchange between axles?

7.2" axle is the front end for all of them. You want the 7 5/8", and 28 splines IIRC

and they are cheaper here http://www.rocky-road.com/lockright.html

ignor my last post

ha ha ha i would deffintaly have a bomb on my hands then lol

I found on http://www.rocky-road.com/powertrax.pdf that the 28 splines are in 4wd v6. Then it says 26 splines are in 2wd and 4wd 4cly….its in a chart like that. I wasn’t aware of 4wd 4cyl???

The chart looks like this

Rear axle
1995 – 2001 8.5 rg 30 10 z71 rpo g87
1988 – 2001 7.625 rg 28 10 4wd v6
1983 – 1995 7.5 rg 26 10 2wd all & 4wd 4 cyl

It was in adobe so I couldn’t copie and paste it. Another concern of mine is that I got my 4:10 gears out of a 2wd axle. I used the ring pinion and carrier… will this affect any thing?
I know this is a mess but please try to bear with me.

What the heck year is your truck? It looks newer than 1995, so it should have 28 spline, but I don't know what you did when you swapped out your rear end. If you didn't have to change your axles to make it fit, then there's your answer.

Alright, you have 28 spline, that chart is wrong. Engine and whether or not it's 4x4 or 2wd DID NOT change the number of splines in the rear. And you have a stock rear, which is 7.625 with 28 splines. Second gens didn't come with 26 splines and the 8.5" rears didn't come with 4.10's that I know of stock in an S10.

THe powertrax lock-rite works fine, but the upgraded version would be the no-slip traction system. Keep an eye out on the forum and ebay, I picked my no-slip for $325 shipped.

Edit: I have the No Slip Assembly. I can't seem to find the P/N off hand, but it's definitely worth it, it works great and is a TON of fun.

I use 75W140 in mine to cut down on some of the noise. It doesn't make a lot of noise anyway, and I don't know that the thicker oil helps that much, but that's what I did.
