Like a lot of guys, my '84 is still running a TTB setup. I've searched and read till my head was spinning and this is some of the info I gathered. Some of the info is repeated within other threads, but it's all worth reading. Some links pertain to Rangers and BII's, but the meat of the info still applies to our full size rigs. This is good reading for those wishing to understand and tweak their TTB setups. So without further ado, here are my links.

What was done?:

- Automatic hubs where replaced with Warn manual hubs
- Bearings and seals in the hubs
- Brake rotor and pads
- Inspection of the front axle u-joints

What wasn't?:

-Replacement of the bushings, ball-joints, drag link or anything else related to the steering.

Of course, all of this was done to the Dana 44 TTB that's installed in my 1993 Bronco.

Ok, lets get started:
