    When I'm slowing down at a stop light, at around 10-25 mph I get a click in th front end. Sometimes it is on the drivers side, sometimes the passenger side. I just had the whell bearing tightened and it made the noise before I had them tightened too. Also, I locked by hubs in today in case I needed four wheel drive in the field I was in. With the hubs locked, I get a really bad clunking noise, like somethings binding up front. Never had that happen before with the hubs locked. Any ideas what could be causing these problems? Thanks

    It's just a guess, but make sure your hubs were assembled properly after the wheel bearing tightening. Mine did that after I did the same thing on both wheels at the same time (didn't have a complete hub as a reference). I found out that I had installed one of the inner 'gear rings' backwards. This may not be your issue, but it might be worth a look.
