Front eLocker by Harrop: Installation and use

I’ve been watching and waiting for Harrop Eaton of Australia to expand their presence in the US, and late last year discovered it had done so..and ECGS was selling/installing them! In fact, ECGS said they were a better fit for Toyota clamshells than the ARB air lockers. Since my regear to 4.56 was relatively recent I decided to do the installation locally, vs ordering a whole new regeared clamshell with eLocker preinstalled. That’s what I would’ve done if they had been available at the time. But I would have missed all that learning Bottom line, if you’re regeared and want to install this eLocker it’s extremely doable if you have very specific instructions...which we did not

The locker is BEAUTIFUL, and Santa was so sweet to bring it to me First part of install was removing the old ring gear from the OE carrier, then assembling and pressing the new carrier bearings (definitely better that reusing the old ones) on to the locker body. Koyo manufactures carrier bearings for Toyota in Japan and are also offered by ECGS.

Much more to follow....time to take a break and go play with the new locker
