Default Spider gears in rear diff (aka losing the rear locker)

So, after double locking my hammer, I've decided it is best suited for speed.

The front locker stripped my hexes and caused odd handling at speed.

As I prepare to go brushless, I've considered opening the rear as well.

I have a hunch that the front diff rebuild kit will fit the rear too. Does anyone know for certain?

If not I will post what I find when I try it. I'm gonna try my front gears in the back before I remove the front locker.

Rear locker is different so the front rebuild kit will not work. The front diff setup is using pins in the shaft to lock in the gears whereas the rear has flat spots to lock it in.

Damn. You're so right.

Oh well. :( hopefully someone makes those parts, just so we have options.
