Bad Hub ??

Would a hub gone bad allow the front axle to turn. I'm not sure yet if mine is, but I did remove my front d-shaft and there is a noticeable difference in driveability now. Any ideas??? Thanks....

If the hub is stuck in the lock position the d-shaft will turn. Look under the Zuke from the side and have someone move the Zuke forward or back and with both hubs unlocked the D-shaft should not rotate. Jim

Re: Bad Hub ??

Thanks Jim. I've done that myself and it doesn't move. Can't figure out why it drives differently when it is removed.....
Well, all is not lost. My front pinion seal is leaking, so the d-shaft had to come out anyway....
