Non selectable lockers?

What are the downfalls of non selectable ones suck as detroits that engage when throttling and disengage when turning besides non being selectable? Bad for highway driving? Mileage? Or nothing really bad? Installation difficulty?

A detroit is locked. period, when you turn your rearend stays locked and if you get too much of a bind on it then you could start breaking stuff. it will be bad for your tires too.

Detroit (Eaton) makes limited slip differentials such as the TruTrac
but THE Detroit Locker is locked all the time like Mud Bug says.

Generally not recommended for any kind of street duty vehicle.

yeah, the detroit only locks up when under power or it senses different speeds between the two tires. I'd look into the Powertrax locker over a detroit though.

oh ok... you are right... I didn't read down far enough
Damn I hate when I do that


It is engineered to keep both wheels in a constant drive mode, and has the ability to automatically allow wheel speed differentiation when required.

my friend's dad said he once had one and every once in a while when letting up the clutch to move from a stop the truck jolted and it felt like he was being rearended. he says thats what it was because of but their technology might have advanced since then.
