I have a aluminum center section in my 32 Ford with a 9 inch. I also have a Detroit Locker ... I have this same setup under my 32 Roadster ... ( photo is of my 32 3W project )

I have had no issues with my Detroit Locker on the street ... except the noise. I can hear it racket ... click ... click ... click sometimes when I am turning slowly ... in town. I have 50 thousand miles on mine ...

The aluminum center section saves about 20 pounds on the unprung weight side of the axle ... and also helps the ride ... My aluminum center is a Strange manufactured unit ... not a Currie. Mark William also make them ... too ...
