I'd always planned to fit a front Lokka from 4 Wheel Drive Systems. I've had them in 2 other cars and found them very useful off road and to me it made sense to have one in an IFS car that had limited suspension travel.
Getting the front diff out on my own wasn't too difficult, but putting it back in was a challenge.
The clamshell diffs are an interesting design and easy to work with.
Once apart, next step was to replace the needle rollers that support the axles.
I replaced both the needle roller bearings as the axles were quite sloppy in the differential carrier.
The Lokka fitted and all clearances checked - spot on!
Crown wheel fitted and ready to reassemble.
All back together ready to install into the car.
