How noisy is the detroit?

It's getting a little off topic but I'm thinking about options for my ford 8.8


You can beat a Detroit. Top quality.

I ran the same front elocker for a bunch of years. No issues.


Other than the issues, I just dont care for it. Even an ARB is the same.
Either great manners and NO traction, or great traction and HORRIBLE manners that will push you out around everything. Nothing worse than a spooled up front axle. NO turning radius and very hard on steering components.

Just my .02. :bigsmile:

I mainly only used the front for when I was really needing over something. Most of the time it stayed unlocked.
Steering shouldn't be much of an issue with the ram assist. It'll be hard on the joints. I'll likely end up switching to heims.

I got the rear shackle hangers on.
They're not currently loaded. Loaded angle is about 30 degrees. Close enough.

If the OEM cluster dies, I may put the stuff that was in it, back in it.
