3 wheel drive?
Here's the deal...last snow we had I put the truck in 4X4, and i have manual warn locking hubs. When going over 35mph you would hear clicking/grinding so I figured the hubs had to much grease in them. CLeaned out the hubs with brake cleaner really well and made sure that they fully go to free and lock. Here's the real fun part...the driver's side wheel won't turn, but the passenger's side wheel does. Both hubs engage the axles, checked that when I finished cleaning them and putting them back on. No luck, still made the sounds after a hub cleaning. I'm thinking the gears in the front diff are stripped or competely shot. How much of a pain is it to change in new gears, how do I check them, how much lighter is my wallet going to get? I've never worked with the internals on a diff before and have no clue what I'm looking for so I figured ask the Ranger Gods!
