  • Aussie locker

    I have been having problems installing a lunch box locker in a Ford 8.8 rear end. I took all the spider gears and side gears out. When I pulled back the axles all these shims came out. Some with teeth on them some with paddles on them. Are these suppose to go back in ? I am also wondering about how to get the last C clip back in. Right now I have to much of a gap between the halves. The instructions gives a range of .145 to .179 and I have a gap of .250. For only taking a couple hours to install I have been cussing at it longer then that. Any help would be appreciated before I destroy it.

    Did it have a limited slip? That might be the issue and if so the locker might not work.

    This is an 8.8 with LS:

      That is exactly what is wrong. It was on my sons Bronco. But I have an 8.8 in my YJ so I am going to use it. Thanks for the reply.

        If I understand correctly you can't use a lunchbox locker in a L/S case. You need a full case locker that replaces the L/S case.
