Well, for those that were watching my latest adds I installed a new 4 inch lift kit last week, and swapped in a set of axles - still 10 bolts but with better gear ratios. I also installed lock rights in both ends and replaced all the joints etc. This evening I ran out to our acreage to pick up some firewood. While I was there I thought I'd run across the creek and check to see if the darn beavers had come back and built another dam. Stop before I go through the swampy spot, lock the hubs and throw it in 4 whell drive, and head in. Well 10 feet through I'm getting banging noises comming from the front end and it's evident the front wheels are not pulling properly, if at all. Banging comes from both sides, one at a time and alternates with no noticable pattern - sometimes twice on right then once on left - then sometimes back and forth. Banging SEEMS to come from hub end of axle but I'm not certain. So after winching out I turn around and unlock one hub. Drive like a nutcase to get back across mud hole. Axle on that side bangs away merrily all the way across but I avoid winching again. Unlock hubs and come home very So, did I reinstall the hubs wrong and they are not holding or is this a problem with the lock right setup? I installed it the same as the back end which works perfect. When the truck is in 4 wheel drive with the hubs unlocked it has no wobble, vibration, or wierd noises like the front shaft is binding or the u-joints are screwed up. I'm going to go have dinner and a stiff drink, then was planning to pull the hubs off and see if they are goofed up. Any suggestions before I tear back into the diff?
