    I was considering swapping my manual hubs in for some auto's on my 72. What do you guys think? Are auto's more prone to trouble or weaker? Thanks

    I personally dont care for the Auto hubs. Ask Kyle89 about his experience with the Auto hubs. NOW THAT IS SCARY!

    The auto's locked doing about 80mph on the Turnpike. I left a trail of parts for about a 1/4 mile. I had people pulling over just cause of the sound. They hadn't even seen the parts. Tore up every u-joint and seal in the driveline.
