I think on of my auto locking hubs is failing to unlock. How can I test for this?
Jack up your wheel and turn it. If the axle turns with the wheel, the hub is engaged. It should unlock by rotating (spinning) the wheel backwards. If it doesn't, you may be able to repair it, but manual hubs are more reliable and are not that expensive.
I have a set of manual hubs for sale in the for sale section..
if you need to fix it this would be the perfect time to switch to manual hubs they are much more reliable and you can get a pair of warn premium hubs 4 under $80

The best way I found to test them is to replace them with manuals.

Roads? Where we're going, we don't need any roads!
I'd definitely go with the manuals, because when the auto hubs disintegrate, they do it at the worst time... when your wheelin' hard! Pat
