cheap = lunchbox locker...I've also heard good things about the aussie lockers.

Best but very expensive = Detroit E locker - goes from L/S to fully locked with the push of a button

As did I, they need to get off their asses.

As for a locker for the 7.5"... you might be better off trying to dig up an 8.8 with a L/S from the factory.

both wheels will all ways be moving the same speed. It will suck when its wet, icey or going around corners, turning anything. Your wheels will be churping all over the palce and rubber will be waring like crazy.
