    ok, here's the case:

    about a month ago i broke the left front axle shaft so i had it replaced, all is fine but the problem is when that happened it crushed the hub on that side, now i have a problem on getting my truck back to 4 wheel drive, i have auto locking hubs front, so what's the fastest way to get everything back, also, i don't have this truck since long, actually i did't have the chance to try out the 4 wheel drive in it, so i just want to know what r the complete check out list before trying to fix/lock the front axle....i don't to do something stupid, i need to know what to check, oils and stuff.......thanx /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Sounds like it would be a good time to replace the unreliable auto locking hubs with manual locking hubs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Plenty of places on the net selling them. Warn Premiums are the lockouts I would recomend. They sell for around $100 US over here. The standard Warn lockouts run around $45 US.

    I'm not familiar with many online vendors as for who is good for dealing with from overseas though but there are alot of guys from all over the world on this board. Maybe one of them will have a good place to shop from.

    I would get a set of Warn Manuals, from almost anywhere, here for one. Call them if you can or e-mail them, to find out if they can ship to you. Make sure you get a conversion kit if you're going from auto to manual.

    Warn hubs already come with all the parts to convert from Auto to Manual on a GM 10 bolt front axle.
