Im thinking it has to do with the Way the TTB functions when it cycles. A SAS would stop the problem!

O5 rangers don't use ttb. And there is a big differance between the his ranger front hub and the toyota. Newer rangers have live hubs, so you can't take them apart or even grease them (unless you go thru the abs sensor) I would still recomend doing the work yourself, since it is very easy.
