    I've got the seal an rings. came in today from east coast gear. I'm pulling it apart tomorrow. this is the 3rd time I've pulled it. the locker isn't even a month old. the design is flawed. I have 2 arb locker in my Cherokee an no issues. 2 years now. how far are you from archdale.

    Take the axle out and take it to east coast gear supply. They won’t kill you on price to fix it. Peace of mind that it will be fixed right is worth something. Be prepared for whatever they tell you is the culprit though.

    Lee that posted above, works there, and is top notch.

    Ecgs is one of the few companies I trust to work on my junk without worry.

    yes, the design is flawed, ARB had a bad run of bond seals. the new internal bond seal should be brown. If you have a blue or black internal seal it is the problem
