As far as welding the front, it'll be tough to steer on grippy surfaces,
because in a turn, the outside tire travels further than the inside. So,
something has to give either you spin one or both of the tires, you go in a
straight line, or you break something.

If you do the front, you can get good steerability by unlocking one of the
hubs, but then that defeats the purpose of the locker. Your probably better
off with an automatic locker or limited slip.

Subject: [EBML] Carrier ID and Lincoln Locker

How can I ID the carrier I just removed from my D44? I think it is an open
carrier but not sure. I never wheeled with this truck b4 I started frame off
resto. Also I am thinking about making mine a Lincoln Locker (if it is
open). Has anyone on the list done this on front axle b4?I found this write
up about it. Thoughts? Good or bad?
