Front end popping/vibration?? hubs?

Hey guys,

I've recently started to notice a "popping" sound when driving over a bump of any size at any speed (no sound when on highway) and a vibration that intermittently occurs between 42-47 MPH. Any ideas as to what the cause could be? I took it to my local dealer today to have them diagnose it and they said it was my two "auto locking hubs". I'm a little confused by this as I have Warn manual hubs on my front axle. Did I just completely waste $80 or could the hubs really be the problem? Thanks in advance!
