    I have a 73' but with locking hubs so at some time there had to have been a conversion, well my problem is I trashed alot of the parts like the larger spring & the spring retainer. My question is, is the the hub (after conversion) the same as one would be with factory locking hubs. or do i neen to by special locks. anyways everythings just a mess, & if someone had a pic or layout of all the parts I need it would be a great help. I got a haynes book & it don't show sh!t

    Just get yourself a new set of hubs. They're cheap and they'll work fine.

    there is nothing special about the locking hubs on your truck. the conversion mostly takes place in your transfer case to make it part time. Your hubs are the same style as factory part time blazers.
