Lockout hubs on a 95 Bronco?

I am not familiar with the front hub system on my Bronco. It it a true auto-locking hub, or do they turn all the time and hence turn the front axle shafts all the time?
Are there any advantages to installing manual hubs on the Bronco, or are they available?

No, they are automatic locking hubs...to engage them, simply shift into 4WD to disengage them drive in reverse in 2WD for at least 10 feet. Driving for long periods of time on hard surfaces such as highways with the front hubs locked will cause some MAJOR nasty binding. At first i did not know how to disengage them and experienced this binding...now i think my hubs are broken

I have a 95 Bronco and switched to manual hubs, the auto hubs can get you stuck,
if you have to reverse direction in 4X4 they will disengage then reengage, only you have to move forward a couple of feet to engage them again. Manuals cost about 80.00 and well worth the money.

Yes manual hubs are available at your local auto parts shop or 4x4 shop for aroun $60-$90, Also to do the conversion right you have to purchase new bearing locknuts and retainer, I do not know if you can get these aftermarket, but Ford does sell them for around $25 a side.

Is this a fairly straightforward job? It seems to be, just wanting some "reassurances" from someone who has been there..[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
