If the vehicle is going to be TRAILERED to a DRAG STRIP, go ahead the weld the spider gears IF YOU MUST!!

For ANY OTHER PURPOSE....Do NOT weld them!!! It's near suicide to try to drive on the street with a locked diff. The is no give on turns, ice, water, mis-matched tires and so on. If you feel you need a locker of some kind, buy one that locks and un-locks on turns.

I wouldn't weld up the spider gears unless you are going to use this vehicle in a demolition derby. If you plan on racing this vehicle on a track and they find out about this, they will throw you off the track. I wouldn't do it, its not worth it, its a disaster waiting to happen.

If this is to be an OFF ROAD only vehicle you are going to be cautioned to do it right and buy a full locker and not ruin parts to get the same results.

If this is for anyhting coming even remotely close to being driven on any road for any purpose other than illegal driving or on track drag racing, you are going to lose this thread to either the Dump, or simply deleted or edited, and it won't take long.

The simple act of welding the spider gears in ANY axle is thoroughly NOT supported in this forum.
