    Warn Premium lockouts on the front. Worked Awesome. Got 1200.00 in break work done from Big O tire, yeah first mistake. But now Driverside hub gets tighter and tighter when going from free to lock. tight enough that I can't get it to the lock side. What gives! opened it up packed full of greese , that sucked, Anywho it turns pretty free when its not attached but when I put it back on tighter. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

    There really should not be very much grease in the lockout hub. That could be the problem.

    The hub only requires a light coating of grease.

    Ditto, I was always under the impression that you were not supposed to pack grease into lock outs, too.

    Your thinking is correct. Even the papers that come with the hubs should say not to pack grease in them. Just lightly coat them.

    The instructions on my mile marker hubs say to use no grease at all. Makes sense if it turns easy when hot and hard to turn when cold.
