okay have never gone into that much depth before on an axle but from what understand is this gives your tire more power. is this gonna lock the front end so when i go around the corner my tires chater and my tires wear real quick?

it will only lock the front end when u have your 4wd engaged, that was the first mod i ever made to my xj, i loved it to much i added another to the rear for my 8.8 axle.
the installation is surprisingly easy to install.. i can install them now in under 1 minute (not exaggerating) with the carrier out of course.

if you ever decide on getting it, let me know i can give you step by step instructions and save you time reading pages and pages on how to do it.
