    Hello All! I just recently installed new Warn premium hubs for my '84 K5. I have noticed some oil/grease around the locking unit. Is this just a bad seal on the hubs, or is this a sign of something worse? 4wd does feel a little stiff when engaged.

    Did you "grease" your hubs when you installed them? You shouldn't use Grease when lubing them, you should use motor oil as per the instructions!

    If you used the motor oil then maybe did you put a lot of grease on the bearings and in the bearings when you packed the wheel bearings?
