    Walked into 4 Wheel Parts with two busted 35 spline crappy hubs and exchanged them for drive flanges, the upgrade only cost $8.60, at least Warn had a lifetime warrenty on them, wasn't a long life however. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Doesn't matter with the front locked on the street. Lockers disengage when there is no input torque so turning is unaffected with the front drive disconnected at the tcase. But if you put it in 4WD on the street, you will KNOW it. No different than the same with the hubs locked. The only down side is that the front axle is always turning. Adds to wear and reduces gas mileage by a small amount, just like a full time 4WD with a “part time” kit but without the factory slugs swapped for lock outs.

    I still don't understand how slugs could cost more than a set of hubs /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    They should have given you money back /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Probably because more people buy hubs than flanges... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    When Scottie (RIP) finished my front Detroit install, he told me to run it with hubs locked in for break-in a bit.......it DID feel goofy having the hubs locked and the Detroit in, even with the transfer case in 2WD.

    Just my experience. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I run an ARB in the front, which is a selectable locker, plus it is mostly a trail only rig now.

    Hmmm, I wonder if that was because of the "break in" (though that's the first time I've heard of that). I know I often drive mine in 2WD since the hubs went on, and I pretty much never unlocked the hubs when I had them, and I really didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. In the past I've also driven other trucks on the street with front lockers and hubs locked in 2WD (from trail to trail genearlly) and never noticed anything significant.

    But to be fair, I've never driven a daily driver with front locker and slugs so maybe there are issues at speed or some specific scenarios... Just currious, what felt "goofy"? Wandering, bucking, ... ?

    Comparing direct hubs locked to hubs unlocked, cornering had way more 'feel', plus sweeping turns felt as tho the locking/unlocking was happening (which it probably was).
