Bighorn lokka

Postby neilwade4130 » Sun Sep 03, 2023 8:38 am

Hello everyone, my name is Neil and I'm from wellington in New Zealand. I have recently bought a bighorn 3.1td manual.
I'm having trouble finding a front lokka for it. Can someone please guide me in the right direction.

Also I wanted to find out if it had a rear lsd.. put it on the hoist at work... spun a wheel and the other wheel didn't move.
Spun the other wheel and the opposite wheel didn't move.
Spun the drive shaft and both wheels Spun the same direct.
Do I have a toasted lsd or is it an open diff?

Kind regards

Try the same test with the gearbox in gear Sometimes the pinion turns easier than the wheel so all the turn goes to the driveshaft. If its factory lsd it will have the code g80 on the build plate.
for the locker try these people https://www.afn4x4accessories.co.nz/

G80 right. I'll have a look in a bit.
I jumped on the link you posted for the lokka but they didn't have any listed. I might give them a call tonight. Thanks for your advixe
