Re: hubs question

Buy the Warn Premiums. Everyone I know that uses them loves them and I've never heard anyone gripe about them.

Re: hubs question

Looks like you have a '95. The lockouts themselves are all the same for Dana 44s and even GM 10 bolts. The exception is '87/88 Fords, but that does not apply to you.

If you've currently got auto hubs with 3 bolts on the outer cap you'll need a "conversion kit."

Re: hubs question

if you were ever to convert to manuals you would need the conversion. Its the only way to make it work with manuals. The 3 bolt wont.

Re: hubs question

The conversion kit just changes over the spindle nuts to the "real" style, rather than the funky conglomeration of half-moon and god-knows-what-else crap that Ford put in with some of their auto hubs.

It's just a 4-notch inner & outer locknut and holed washer for each side. Most "conversion kits" are highway robbery, you can get this stuff from any u-pull-it for free (just put it in your pocket) from any Ford with manual hubs. I believe you could also buy the pieces separately for less money - once people package things as a "kit" the price skyrockets.

Anyone who's done an SAS (or is fond enough of TTB to have several lying around: Steve 83) probably has extra locknuts just floating about.

Re: hubs question

I bought the spindle nuts and washers separately at my local Car Quest auto parts for much less than the packaged kit sells for.
