ok, quick question. i just put on a 4 inch lift with 2 inch warrior shackles and 2 inch front coil spacers. so in total about 6 inches. my question is i just ordered 4.56 gears for the rear. and was wandering should i go ahead and order 2 aussie lockers one for the front and one for the rear. i plan on rebuilding the rear axle in and out next weekend. so i want to do a one and done type thing. any suggestions or ideas would be great.

When you are gearing swapping is the perfect time to put in the locker. Kind of a two birds with one stone thing.

If you ordered 4.56 for the reat, make sure you get 4.56 for the front too. If your rig is a daily driver I would suggest just locking the rear. If you do any city driving, having both diffs locked will make it a pain to get around town.

not if you have manual hubs and unlock them.
