Re: Locking Hubs
Well, you don't want to overtighten the plug, but the later models came from the factory with a plastic ring on the plug. Get a new one that hopefully will have this plastic ring.
I have no idea what this guy is talking about. It sounds to me like you need to have a lot of work done on this rig. If you have u joints falling apart, and folks have stated you need new front end steerig components, and ball joints, as may as well let someone redo your hubs properly. When you pull the hub dials, how much grease is in there? You really should not see much of any grease. The grease should be lightly applied to the gear contact areas, but is mainly for the hub internals, where the bearings reside.
