    why won\'t my front passenger side hub lock???

    Changing the front passenger side wheel bearings and races. I loosen the lug nuts, jack up the front tire, remove the tire, lock the hub and I can still spin it? I did the exact same thing when I did the drivers side and everything was fine. What am I missing??? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    why shouldnt you be able to spin the rotor once the hubs are locked? if the tcase isnt in 4wd and only one hub is locked..it should spin..

    Thanks for the info, bigjbear. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif That "how stuff works" website is always helpful. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Chris (beater74), mission accomplished...new bearings and races in front wheels and got the new meats mounted on. I'll take some pics of my poser when I get a chance. BTW, now that I see how good it looks w/ 33s, I'm starting to think how good it would look w/ a little lift and some 35's. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif The addiction grows stronger! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Soon you'll be one ton, carved body, locked at both ends and on 40's...

    Enjoy the 33's for a while Kris, you gotta pace yourself./forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
