Default lunchbox lockers

I have an aussie right now in my rear and looking to lock the front. The aussie for a d30 is out of stock and I need it before april 7th. What do you guys suggest I do?

I don't have small axles so I've never been able to use Aussie. Haven't seen any bad reviews for them yet!

2 years ago I put a spartan locker in my d30 front and haven't had any trouble. I work the hell out it as well!

Is running a dana 35 aussie in my d30 a bad idea?

Other than the fact that it won't fit, no, not at all.

I just did some reading on it, and as long as you have the right size side gear d35 locker it looks like it would work

If its a 35 from a tj, i think it will fit. the 92-older ones had a different size side gear.

I couldnt find the side gear size on a 30 with google

Id defiantly run the right one if you were ordering them, but if you already had the 35 locker that's a lot cheaper than ordering a new one

I want to run the right one but the aussie isnt available for a d30 at the moment. Im already have a rear aussie for my d44 and am unsure about spartan. Shall I wait run a lockright wait for the d30 aussie or run a d35 one in it?
