Swapping out hubs.

The hub in my right front froze up and I decided to switch to a manual. since I (the mechanic)will have it apart I figured I may as well change the inner and outer bearings also. Who has done this swap before and can tell me what to look out for. 96 Bronco w/302, don't know what axles or gearing.

if memory serve correct, you should hava a Dana 44 IFS in there. it should be a straight up easy job. remove the lockout, remove the hub. press the old bearing races out, press the new ones in, and put her back together.

a punch will drive the old races out of the hubs, you will need something to drive the new races in. you'll also need the hub socket tool to get the lock nut off

I'm waiting for the hubs, I got them from J.C. Whitney for 71.99 plus shipping for the MileMarkers. All metal construction no plastic. We just had the hubs off a couple of weeks ago when we put new brakes on and decided to check the bearings, I tried to get away with replacing them for a little longer, but, as things go, when it breaks, you got to fix it. They have all the tools needed at the shop. I can't physically do the work myself so I have to pay someone to do it for me, the guys who own the place are friends of mine and we all belong to a mens club, so they cut me a big break on the labor, occasionally they don't charge me at all. I'm excited about putting the manual hubs on, I can beat the crap out of them out back in the creek.

Well Joe I take it you don't like the auto hubs? But thas a good price you got. Hope you get a good price on labor if they even charge you.

They treat me good Joe, actually, they treat most of their customers well. There a few issues I have from time to time with them, but, it usually gets ironed out to everyones satisfaction. They get a lot of repeat business, especially from their old time customers. Many of their old timers have their grandchildren starting to come there, that's always a good sign.
