So.....???? Any thoughts on what I posted above last week?
I thought you had a valid point.
Maybe it's just a matter of timing for someone to get out
and shoot a new video. Time will tell.
I have not tested the kits by hooking two trucks together because I don't have two trucks. I have tested on rocky hills and in the mud. To really get in the mud I used the upper end of a pond. I started in the mud just out of the water. I would drive in the same ruts. The ruts became 6 to 8 inches deep. When driving slow in 2 wheel drive, I would get stuck. When I went to 4 wheel drive it would get out. Allan
I see. .... Well maybe somebody can do that, it would be interesting to see..
Have you hooked your truck up to a tree while the trucks is in dirt, gravel,etc... ??? That would be interesting to see also...
dif locks for 91 subaru sambar
Do you have any idea where I can find kits to convert my rear ends to limited slip?? Or what do you think of welding the back diff only?
LSD Kits for Subaru Sanbar

PM to Allan - he is the source.
Do you have a kit for a sub sambar??
lsd for my Sambar
Do you have kits for the Subaru Sambar available? mine is a 1991 My number is 780-904-3119 Gil
Allan, I see you sell limited slip for suzuki, is that pre or post 94, i would be interested in a 99 kit
Yes, I have a limited slip kit for the '99 Suz. Allan
Allan how do we contact you regarding the lsd kits for mini's. I am definitely interested in a rear kit possibly front also
Phone 205 755-4094 Thanks, Allan
Is there any way of knowing which front diff I have in my 92 suzuki without tearing it apart?
I would love a front lsd kit for mine but I may have the type with 4 spider gears..im not sure.
Do some 92 suzukis have only 2 spider gears in the front?
Also is there someone out there who has lsd front and back?
How much is shipping and how do we order them? Do these make the steering wheel a little bit harder to turn if you put one in front?
Hope you don't take this wrong -- But if you read the whole thread it would save you from having to post questions that have already been answered.

Thanks, bear with this newbie, I have been reading all topics for weeks.
Anymore info on these LSD's. I have a 98 Hijet Jumbo and was looking for more traction. Any more info on the LSD would be great.
Welding the Diff
IMO, I think if your "ONLY" using it off road welding the diff should be fine. HOWEVER only with someone that really knows what they are welding and how. (cast parts can 'shatter' then your totally hosed) anyhow, just about every single ATV/UTV (that we compair to MiniTrucks) have a solid rear diff. You will have more tire wear, and I would NEVER drive on pavement and be very carefull on any kind of road. Your a lot longer than any of the other UTV's and could easily fishtail.
Other than that, I wish I had a perfect clear, one stop answer on the Axle / Diff lock. I have seen other posts suggesting Axle lock is 'Diff Lock' for the front. Seems to me the Suzuki Carry Lists 2wd 4wd Hi/Lo Axle and Diff lock this would imply to me what I have seen in other posts about Axle lock, why would they call it that, and not the normal 2wd/4wd?
My 2Cents, and hopefully I don't get flamed too bad for it. I have a Toyota bush truck with a welded diff running a set of 31" tires with chains that has been fine now for... 5-6 years.
I agree on the welding the rear. I think that is where I am at now. I rarely if ever drive my truck on the road, and if so its gravel. Having 3wd instead of 2wd in my 4wd will be a world of difference back in the woods. There are dealers here who claim having Diff Lock rear ends available for swapping in, yet none of them ever reply. Worse case scenario my rear end goes bad from being welded, I am gonna have to buy another one anyways.
And very good point on the UTV's having posi-track. And guys drive them all over the paved roads all the time. But yes, I wouldnt with a mini for lists of reasons.
Axle Lock does Not have anything to do with "locking" the front axle or any axle, as in Diff Lock or "solid axle" or "posi track" as usually refered.
Axle lock takes the place of manual locking hubs. Instead of having to get out and manual lock your hubs to the ends of the axles, it is done automatically. Many people advertise "with axle lock" like it means something special, some even go as far to imply it is something specifically special (posi track).
It is Not.
On a Suzuki Carry you can disconnect the Axle Lock switch located on the transfer case handle. Then you can utilize LOW range (4wd low/lo) without actually being in 4WD , until you push the AXLE LOCK button located on the dash. The purpose for the button on the dash is simply for "shift on the fly", you push it, then can shift the transfer case into 4WD HIGH/HI on the fly
(letting of the gas of course). NOTE do NOT attempt to shift into 4WD LOW/LO until at a complete STOP.
Transfer case can be shifted into 2wd hi , 4wd hi, 4wd lo, and Neutral. All the transfer case does is send the power from the engine/transmission to the front and rear differential. The differentials are then receiving power equally. The rear Differential can then be locked by applying the Diff Lock feature which utilizes a diaphram to engage it. The front differential can NOT be locked. Other wise there would be a spearate button labeled "FRONT DIFF LOCK" . The front axle is then locked by utilizing the AXLE LOCK feature, which locks the axles to the front hubs/tires/wheels, sending the power from the transfer case to the 2 front tires.
All of the above features if equipped, work independently of each other .
