Question about cj hub assembly

Hey guys,

I have a minor problem with the hubs on my cj. The original spring is supposed to be worn on the passenger side according to the guy i bought it from and he said it was pretty simple to replace. the jeep is a 78 cj7 and I need to know whether this is fairly easy to do since I don't have that much experience fooling with vehicles other than changing plugs and oil and when learning new things i generally mess it up in the this day i still burn toast on occasion. But the real question is how difficult is it to take apart the hub and reassemble it :? and could anyone give me a brief tutorial or tell me where i can find one.

yep.. first thing to do is to get yourself a manual.. ie. chilton's or haynes... so that way you have a basis to go off.. for things like hubs.. they usually come with pictures.. making it even easier..
and if that doesnt work.. stop back in here and their are plenty of us who can walk you thru it..

Re: Question about cj hub assembly

lockouts aren't very expensive, I would just by a new set. They are easy to install if you have snap ring pliers, two screwdrivers will do, plus its a good piece of mind to know that you won't get stranded over a lockout.
