I went to the local 4x4 shop and asked for a set of Warn's and he talked me into a set of Superwinch. He's seen what I do to trucks and says it's a better hub. They are more expensive.

Re: superwinch hubs??

I lost the driver side auto hub yesterday and started calling around this morning looking for Warn hubs. Local auto parts store actually had a set of Superwinch hubs in stock - $100.00. The Warn's cost $80.00 plus the conversion kit $40.00 or $120.00 total. According to the parts store I don't need a conversion kit for the Superwinch. Seems like this is the better (and less-expensive) way to go?

Re: superwinch hubs??

Went ahead and got the Superwinch hubs since they were in stock. Turns out the guy at the auto parts store mis-quoted the price - they were only $69.95. And - no conversion kit required. The instructions are ambiguous at best, you may as well just throw them out. The Bronco maint book was pointless as well. We wound up removing the OEM auto locking hubs and guts down to the spindle nut, putting the three thrust washers back in, then installing the Superwinch hubs. Once you get past the first snap ring, everything just falls right out. Used the pick tool of a swiss army knife, a screwdriver to hold it stationary and a feeler gage to get under it once I picked it out. We then crossed our fingers, took a deep breath and went out for a test run. Everything worked fine. No more clunking, whirring, grating or other nasty sounds from the front end anymore. Positively delighted with the results! So for about $70.00 - it's all over.
