Default E.z. Locker Problems

I INSTALLED A DETROIT E.Z. LOCKER IN MY DANA 30 DISCO. THE DRIVERSIDE IS SPINNING BUT NOT THE PASSENGER SIDE. I THOUGHT THE VAC. ACT. WASN'T WORKING SO I INSTALLED A CABLE ACT. AND ITS STILL DOING IT. MY QUESTION IS WITHOUT A LOCKER THE PASSENGER SIDE WOULD BE THE SIDE THAT WOULD SPIN IN 4WD.....RIGHT? TRYING TO RULE OUT THAT MY LOCKER INSTALL IS THE PROBLEM. HELP PLEASE. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

First, are you sure the cable is adjusted correctly? Is the carrier making any noise? Have you jacked it up with both front wheels off the ground or are you just trying to spin your tires to test it?

Both Wheels In The Snow On The Ground. The Driverside Is Digging. Theres No Noise. I Thought I Had The Cable Adjusted Right But I'm Not So Sure Now. The Locker Instructions Say The Clutches Should Fit Freely But When You Install The Dowels And Springs They Become Tight Is This Correct? On A Stock Jeep When In 4wd The Passenger Side Is The Side That Digs? Correct?

That all depends. Whichever tire has the least traction is the one that will spin. Did you spin the wheels at all before you put the diff cover back on when you installed it? Just to observe the locker spinning and to make sure it was engaging?
