    if anything , in the chance that it doesnt unlock the only thing that would happen is makes it not want to turn as in the front axle has a push to it, the wheels may be turned but it will still want to move straight ahead



    now if you are running big tires(like way to big for the axle) in high traction wheeling ,then yea you can break a 60 with even a open diff

    I was planning on running 37 tires and stock 350 engine with 35 spline axles????? Is the locker in the front a bad way to go.Its not a daily driver but will only lock the hubs when I need to.

    You'll be fine with a locker up front.

    It will greatly help with steering the bigger tires, but it won't help with the front end trying to push straight even with the tires turned. To solve that problem you need some kind of locker that you can manually unlock, such as an ARB.
