    Hey, I stripped one out and was able to find a replacement at Lowe's in the specialty hardware (screws) section. All for 48 cents and brass even. If you don't have a lowes, let me know and I can probably mail in envelop.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    Most of 4x4 shops have Warn hub rebuild kits that have all the replacement hardware including the screws.

    I would try Lowe's, but I think those are weaker than the Warn screws. I also tried where I bought them, and they couldn't get them, but reccommended a place called Fastenall, that carries every size of screw or bolt anyone will ever need, except they didn't have them either...

    I have perchaced a rebuild kit from WARN. It cam with all the screws, retainer ring, snap ring and O ring. That would be your best bet. Anyplace that sells Warn hubs can get thease kit too.

    I put the hubs on a few months ago. Then I took my truck to get the balljoints done...they supposedly aligned it, but did a crappy job. Took it back a couple weeks later to get it fixed, and they fixed it, but said my hubs weren't bolted on right. I reminded them that they did the balljoints, so they were tha last ones to have them out. after that, I pretty much forgot about it, then going down the street the other day, I heard a really bad clicking noise, and then the cap of the hub just popped off. I could only find one screw, and I'm pretty sure thats the only one that was in there.

    The price shops charge for balljoint replacement, you should have done them yourself. It is not that bad of a job.

    I remember stripping my screws also and I went to the local hardware store and bought some new ones. I don't remember what grade they were and I'm sure that at that time I didn't even check(I was young), anyways I had them on there for a couple of years before I switch out the hubs again. If you think they aren't strong enough then just carry a few spare ones in the glove box just in case.

    The Advance Auto Parts store usually has rebuild kits, which include these bolts, typically in stock for the Warn hubs. The local NAPA store also had a Warn sign up.

    Basically, any parts store that carriers Warn products should be able to order these kits.

    The screws don't need to be very strong, they only hold the hub together. If the Loew one's are the right legth
    and thread per inch/cm, I give them a try, the real warn ones will not be less than 48 cents.
    Tip coat then with anti seize.
    Good luck
