Default manual hubs wont unlock!

So I had automatic hubs like everybody else.Well they kept locking in all the time by themselves.So I went and bought and installed some AVM hubs now the drivers side will unlock but I have to jiggle the passenger side cv axle and rock it back and forth to get the hub to unlock its self.I had it locked in the other day and it wouldnt unlock at all I had to take it off and it popped back in to place.I was thinking maybe my wheel bearing is shot cause it seems like my cv axle moves from side to side more than the drivers side does,anybody have any ideas before i possibly waste money on a new wheel bearing.My truck is a 99.Also when I took the passenger auto hub off it also was staying locked in and the drivers side pretty much worked fine!

Default Re: manual hubs wont unlock!

Well I took the hub off again seems it wont fully unlock for some reason the gear slides back and one side is alittle offset causing it to still ride the gear the cv shaft slides into.Well I guess I got a faulty hub.
