Xlt explorer custom_s 1997

PLEASE NOTE;

The front diff D35 IFS in gen 2 is a standard rotation... I ordered a wrong part and luckily Summit Racing sent me a replacement within 4days to down under...

BIG THANK'S TO SUMMIT RACING....

I found that too that there is NO such air/e- locker will fit into DANA 35 IFS in our Explorer gen2 because of the diff centre for being small and there is 2 types of Dana 35...

I end up installing a Auto Locker for my front diff....

take note! no such thing air locker or e-locker will fit on our gen2 explorers (1997)...
I searched and asked but no luck :(

This RD102 Air lockers from ARB don't fit I tried to ring and ask to measure my original diff housing and still no luck... someone mentioned that D35 diff has two types and the IFS Dana35 has smaller housing (diff carrier)...

here's what it look like RD102...

I've been searching for what will be the suitable speedo gear to fix my speedo reading back to normal as you know changing the diff ratios and tyre diameter will change the speedo reading....
so I found out the say's the C1DZ-17271-A (black coloured gear) 20T is the perfect one...
