    <font color=blue>They came with my 8 lug dana 44 that I've been running since October. I have had no problems yet. I did however loose some of the screws when I put new rotors on the axle. This alowed some water to get in (see sig pic) but I caught it early and got all the water out before it did any damage. Anyone got some spare screws lying around?</font color=blue>

    Call Warn, I think they'll hook you up with some free ones.

    I lost some hub screws after a brake job. I went to the GMC dealer and they ordered them for me but got the wrong ones. Looked them up and they only showed one size for my truck -- the ones they ordered. I emailed Warn and they sent me out six new ones and a new rubber seal at no charge, no questions asked. A great company to deal with!

    Do the hubs have six allen screws? the ones on mine right now only have 5. Is there a conversion kit or something you have to get?

    I have the standard hubs and have had no problems. The internals are the same as the premium hubs.

    I just swapped in the my autos for some standard warn's and I have had no problems with them at all. The only install problem I had as far as not fitting was that the instructions said to re-use the washer that goes behind the lock ring, say to put it between the hub unit and the spindle. Well that sall fine, but it says you have to have some in to out float in the unit. With the washers I had no float, with out the washers I have some in to out float. So I left them out, and like I said, I have had no problems with them at all.

    Will work for parts, beer and sex.
