I bought a new Aisin elocker actuator

I hope everyone is staying safe out there and doing well. Brooklyn is pretty quiet these days, canít wait to get out to VT or Rausch to run some trails and put my 33Ēs to the test.



Anyway - my elocker was always a little sticky and finally stopped working. I rebuilt it but it was heavily corroded and still didnít work. In the interest of saving myself future hassle, I went ahead and ordered what looks to be an OEM replacement - the Aisin sat-008 for $300.






Technically itís only listed for a Tacoma on Rockauto, but it looks the same and I think tacos have the same elocker that we do.

I havenít installed it yet but Iím anticipating a simple swap. Once I confirm it works Iím going to seal all around the outside with permatex or something and coat the whole thing in fluid film.

Will update once installed!

$300, ouch. But, probably a good decision, as you see them on EBay used for $200+. Hope I never have trouble with mine

I dunno, seemed pretty reasonable to me considering how much people drop on a roof rack or some lights.

Definitely want to maintain the one ya got, but the metal on them actually just disintegrates.

Iím just glad AISIN is actually still making new replacements vs buying some beat piece from eBay for $200

Yes the new replacements are nice for guys like us that maintain our rigs. Something like this brand new replacement I would remove once a year to make sure it didn't corrode to the housing. They always do that out here in Michigan, ive broken two so far. I did have success getting one from a member on here that lived in Florida and it looks to be in extremely good condition, i guess climate is everything.

Wow I need to keep an eye out for you when I'm in the city.

Maybe put a layer of antiseize on the mating surface. Once it seizes on there you are screwed. A piece of cast aluminum was going to crack off and shoot into my eye before my e-locker actuator was going to unfuse from the third.

@JohnOfTheJungle

What would be needed to convert a non elocker model?

Is there a way besides finding an axle off a wreck?

Fabricate your axle to fit the new 3rd member.

Thanks - not as clean as a lot on here, new wheels & tires do a lot for her!

I will update in a few more days for sure.

@T4R2014 definitely hit me up if you find yourself in the city or Brooklyn at any point. I'm also going to make good on getting out for some wheeling and always looking for a few others to join - either Rausch or public trails in VT.

I bought a new Aisin elocker actuator

Got the new actuator installed, it works flawlessly. I did a test drive and turned it on/off it 4-5 times and itís smooth.


Only thing is the indicator light on the dash keeps blinking when engaged rather than going solid. I noted that the 2 prong connector had some green corrosion so I probably just need to clean it and it should start working again.

I also took the opportunity to raise my front kings 5 turns each (about 3/4Ē) to hopefully give me a little more clearance for the front tires. I know people say suspension lift doesnít help clear tires, but Iím rubbing the firewall just a smidge and in my head it makes sense that lifting a little more should help that clear.
