Ummm Hub housing

So I'm getting the suspension worked on and the guy calls me and says my hub housing is shot. I've heard of bearings wearing out, but the housing? Anybody else seen this. Trying to avoid 365.00 a piece for new housings.

Hey dude, I am stuck with the same problem on my 1996 OBS. The race is spinning inside the hub. What year is your truck? My problem is that the truck is 4 wheel drive and I can not find this part anywhere! 2 wheel drive is easy to find. If you find the solution for finding the 4 wheel drive part please let me know. I will let you know if I find a place to get them.

It looks like there are a few aftermarket vendors for hardcore dana builds that are making them. The down side is, most of them are for Dodge and Cheby. I haven't had a chance to call around to see if they're carrying ford, or if there is a compatible solution.

Right on, I may have a bead on some? I have to call Monday and see if they are for two or four wheel drive. The info does not say, I have had a couple places have a picture for a four wheel drive but they were actually for two wheel drive.

Have you checked out the billavista bible on pirate4x4. It has a ton of useful information, but get a 6 pack and prepare to sit down for a while. I keep browsing through it for answers, but haven't taken the time to sit down and read the whole thing.

This may be too late to be helpful...

I was checking O'Reilly's online site looking for brake rotors and found a brake rotor and hub assembly for about double the money of the rotor itelsf. I suspect no bearings, races or seals, but the price of 8 studs alone almost pays for this. I'm sure other auto parts stores have them too. But when I was in the store itself, they couldn't find the item. Sometimes shopping online can be fruitful.
