    I have a stock 77 k5 that makes grinding noises from the front hubs. It only dose it when I let off the gas to slow down, the transfer case is in H, and the hubs are unlocked. I have to drive it with the hubs locked all the time to stop it from grinding. Has this happend to anyone else or dose anyone have any advice for me? Thx

    <font color=purple> if you have the manual hubs in there, take em out and replace them with WARN premiums.</font color=purple>

    ITs hard to say. I'd take them out and look to see where the grinding is happening. If its a true metalic grind you will be able to see where it is coming from.

    Will work for beer, parts and tools.

    Have you checked your wheel bearings? Mine was making an awful racket once, and you could grab onto the top of the tire and feel the play (at least an inch back & forth) as the "spindle" moved in the end of the inner hub

    I'd start there...
