LS and/ or Lockers

If I have the rear ARB lockers installed, isn't my SMB rear end still Limited slip when the rear lockers are not engaged?

Nope, Open Differential when Not Engaged.

Now it begins to make sense. It's question of LS only or OD/locker.

I kept wondering why someone wouldn't want both....


Thanks!

I ended up going with limited slip differential.
Thanks for the enlightenment oldbonesclimber.

LS and/ or Lockers

In my Jeep I have an Auburn Ected "locker". It is a limited slip when it's disengaged and it's a much tighter limited slip when it's engaged.

I wouldn't call it a true locker because I can (and regularly do) make one wheel spin freely even when it's engaged but it does work well enough.
