2002 F350 4WD - Hub Replace or Repair

Having some issues with the 4WD on this truck. 4WD works only if I manually lock the hubs which I see is discussed elsewhere in the forums. One particular post details how to replace the stock hubs with a fully manual set.

I am debating what to do about the hubs. Is is worth trying to repair the stock hubs? What is a likely solution? Vacuum line? Dirty mechanism?

I have driven all winter with the hubs manually locked and have had no issue activating 4WD when needed. Are there recommendations or a procedure to clean and maintain the OEM hubs or are manual hub replacements the way to go?

Any advise or links to related forum threads would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Check the vacuum lines where they connect to the hubs. That short little hose between the hub and frame tends to rot and leak.

I'll start there!
Thanks for the information. Should be getting new springs and shocks early this week so I'll be hunting down vacuum lines.
