    If you want the central axle disconnect to stay engaged permanently save yourself the $171 and throw a spacer in and reinstall the old actuator. Cheapest 5 minute permanent fix you'll encounter.

    Or if you still want the option for engagement it's Posi-lok you're thinking of for the cable activated CAD.

    Evan - I put spacers in both of my IFS rigs before winter. One actuator was dead, the other almost dead. The spacer is the way to go, at least for the winter months. I used a 7/8 reg depth 3/8 drive socket in one truck, used a lug nut in the other. Both work equally well.

    I had the Posi-lok in an older truck. It is the way to go if you want to be able to switch it off and on.
