Warn Full Floating Kit with Locking Hubs

I have a 1992 Dana 35c axel with the warn full floating kit with locking hubs and an ARB and 4.56 gears. The problem is I can turn the drive shaft 5/8". That seams like way to much play. Called the warn tech line and they said the was a normal amount of play.Called Randy's gear tech line and they said there should not be any play. The axel was bought used with this set up and has been to one axel shop and they said everything is set up correct. With the ARB locker on the play is cut in half ??? Has anyone had experience with this type of set up. Thank for any help with this problem.

Re: Warn Full Floating Kit with Locking Hubs

I have the same setup and am sure that the problem is in the locking hubs. I get a lot of "slap" in the rear full float setup (it uses the same locking hubs as the front). I had a mechanic check the rear end, he found that the problem was the locking hubs.

I had the front end apart this weekend and realized there is the same problem in the front. We should have bought the 5.5 in bolt paddern and got the big locking hubs.

Warn tells me you can not change without buying a whole new conversion setup. I guess I will wait until I change to 44's or 60's.

Does anyone know how I can change to the 5.5" patern with out buying a whole setup from Warn?
