These are aftermarket Warm manual locking hubs. They have about 20k miles on them.
I took them apart on both sides & I found no broken parts. I did notice that on the passenger side the big gear was all the way in & was stuck. So that side had been locked in all along. That's why the u joint would turn on that side when I turned the front driveshaft. The big gear was all the way out on the drivers side. I jacked up the wheel on the drivers side, pushed the big gear in while turning the wheel & driveshaft did turn. I poped that gear back out, put the cover back on, turned it to lock & it did not lock in.
I also noticed that there is hardly any grease in each hub. I'm thinking( and hoping) that they just need to be greased. How much grease is supposed to be in the hubs? What type of grease do I use. I called my buddy who is a mechanic & he said to use a lithium white grease. He's a pretty good mechanic so I assume he knows what he is talking about. I'm going to buy some & see what happens.
