Have you done gear setup before? Make sure you have all the tools that you MIGHT need (not just the ones you'll definitely need lol) if you want to get it done in a day. Also don't re-use old bearings for setup if you're going to be replacing them with new ones, the size difference can be enough to throw off your setup-forcing you to pull your new bearings at least once, if not multiple times.

Buy a new set of bearings and hone them out to use for setup, not your old ones.

aussie locker

So its been some time since the install. The install went very smooth Andrew and I were able to get it done in 5 hours and it wasn't as hard as I thought. Gear installs just sounds scary but honestly guys it's really not that bad just pay attention to detail I can't stress enough And follow the manufacturer torqe and tolerances spec's and your all good. I have not received had any problems with the locker and I was able to beat the snot out of it and I'm very impressed.
