a couple months ago (pics in gallery) my truck was in an accident and i've finally got it back on the road ($1000 later)
i did the suspension work and bumper myself, but had a shop do the frame work and windshield. when i was working on it i noticed that when i locked the hubs in the front and had the transfer case in 4, the front right tire would still spin and there would be a quite clicking sound.
when my truck hit the ditch the hubs were locked but the truck was not in four wheel drive. i'm not an expert mechanic but i think this within my range. am i looking at a whole new hub assembly or is there one part that is probably broken, that i could probably just get out of a junk yard?
If you hit hard enough to bend the radius arm you've probably got lots more problems that you don't know about. Anyway the TTB arms are the components that go from a pivot on the crossmember out to either spindle (left to right) It's what the front of the radius arms (fore and aft) are attached to. This is probably also bent. as far as the clicking goes, I have installed the collar? that engages the hub to the spindle splines inside the hub backwards and it was enough to just prevent it from engaging and it clicked when turned.
