28 spline 8.8 aussie locker

Hey guys, been talking with Aussie and they say they have plans for a locker for the 28 spline 8.8. if you are even remotely interested in one shoot an email to Aussie @ [email protected]. They say summer at the earliest but if they get a bunch of interest they may speed up the production schedule.

It's not that bad, just makes the steering heavier.

Hopefully they will machine the 28 spline with better tolerances than they did the 31 spline.

Hmmm...I had no issues what-so-ever in the 'tightness' dept. Sure...tighter than spec...but that center pin went in with very soft blows of the dead blow.
