Default Powertrax No slip Vs. Lockright

what is the difference between the two? I'm looking to the lock the rear, not a DD but does get driven on the road. Is the no slip just their newest version which elminates the clicking noise that most lockrights have?

The no slip I believe is supposed to act more like a limited slip, but will lock when necessary. A lock right is just locked or unlocked. What are you putting it in? I had a lock right in the rear of my TJ for 7 or 8 years. It can be a little jerky as it locks and unlocks, but you'll get used to it. It would be smoother behind an automatic trans than it was in mine with a manual. Buy the lock right. It is cheaper and has a few less parts to break.

The no slip is by NO means a limited slip. There is confusion because their full case locker is call a no SLIP.....their newer lunch box locker is a no SPIN.

The no spin and the lockrite are essentially the same....both replace the spider gears in your carrier.

it was my understanding that were essentially the same, locked when going straight but would slip when turning.

except when under throttle....they turn by pressure being applied to the center pin.....so if you're applying power in 4wd they will lock during a turn as well.

They are 2 different products. They have been making both of them for several years. I did not say it was a limited slip, just that it is supposed to behave more like one on the street. They both do replace the spider gears, but the lock right has less parts, accomplishes the same thing, and is less expensive and quite possibly more reliable.

if you weld it you wont have to worry about the popping when it engages/disengages.

I stand corrected. I was thinking the soft locker when I thought full carrier

They are the same thing but the no-slip is the quiet locker that has extra springs in it to absorb the noise. It is a lot quieter as I have run both a lockrite and a no-slip.

I put a no slip in my s-10 and I have had extremely good luck with it. If I am listening for it I can hear it open sometimes and have only heard a clunk out of it a few times ever, doesn't ratchet on me at all and is extremely well road mannered. The way I look at it is if I was going to put a locker in something that was more off road then on road I would go with the lockright and save a little money, but if it was something that was more on road I would go with the no slip so I would be listening to ratcheting all the time.

I have ran both , the powertrax unit is suppose to be stronger . Mine was junk out of the box . It unlocked so damn hard it could snap an axel from unlocking . I have used a few lockrites , they have held up very well in a rear but i broke them to often in fronts .
