Aussie vs Spartan lockers

hey guys i am about to put a new set of tires on and my rear diff is currently welded and is wearing down the old set fast so with this new set i want to take care of them and get a locker so it'll have some give around turns. I want to buy one of these two and i was wondering if anybody has pro's/cons for these so that i can make a good choice! thanks!

I have aussies, and they're amazing. But needless to say, they'll still tear down your tires. just push the clutch in and coast through it.

Lockrights, Aussies, Spartans...
All the same design and practically same performance.

Pick whichever one you can find cheapest.

I run lockrights front and rear and love them.

I have a rear lockright. It works perfect but is definitely noisy.

A new shipment of 8" Aussies came in last month. I know, because I got one! Check the website.

I love mine, and any of the above would be a huge improvement over spool/welded.

My Aussie has worked flawlessly so far. Torqmasters has great customer service as well.

Good incentive to re-gear with the stronger V6 rear heh.
