Yes, they do. Seen lots of bad things happen with non-selectable lockers up front on numerous rigs. And even with power steering, it can be hard as heck to turn on slickrock, as in, really, really hard. Belt-squealing hard. Auto lockers (Aussie, Lock Right and Detroit) belong in the rear, not the front.
