<!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start --><!-- END TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start -->Has any one installed one of these assemblys and if so has it been worth the extra $?

I am about to replace my front hubs for the second time and am looking at just installing this kit, but want to be sure it is worth the extra $.

Any thoughts...

Thanks

I just stuck the spyntec kit from solid axle industries. Spyntec Lockout Hub Conversions It is pretty much the same thing as dynatrac. So far it has been great...

They are pretty easy to install. Hardest part was pressing out the Ujoints for the new stub shafts.

Where are you located? Have you checked out Northwest Ford Diesels ? There is an event up in Hubbard (Woodburn) area on the 30th... should be fun.

I was just looking at them online, they are basically the same price and style as the Dynatrac conversion. The difference is no fairy dust from the Dynatrac, instead it is from SpynTec...LOL

I guess these kits are good if you need to replace your spindle do to damages, or when installing large (over 37") tires, other than that one should just replace the hub assembly. Am I seeing this right?

I would give them a call. You never know, you may be able to get them cheaper. These guys are a little different... LOL I know Dynatrac will not budge.. LOL

Pretty much if you maintain these wheel bearings you shouldn't have to have to mess with them again... Peace of mind.. LOL... It is a must for larger tires, just becuase you eat through bearings a lot more.

Some trucks just eat through the stock bearings a lot more then others....

it never hurts to try right!
I would imagine those 38's would eat some bearings pretty quick especially playing in the snow!
