well had the truck back in the shop clip came off the back of the lock out on the passenger side. warn is telling me that this is due to to much pressure most likely due to some bearings in the axle being out. guess i will be ordering up a full set of bearings and tearing into the axle.

That is Warns stock answer. Did you buy new bearings? I didn't have bearing issues so I kept looking into it. Eventually I stretched the snap ring out a little and made sure the ring was seated all of the way in. Just putting the ring back in was not enough and popped out repeatedly. Pliers are needed to seat the ring properly. In my case it was Warn not seating the snap ring properly IMO. Once the ring was stretched and seated I haven't had another problem.

yeah i replaced the bearings should have known better but warn is sending me a new set and wants mine that kept throwing the clip back but once i get the new warn hubs i will be returning them to where i bought the original set because i have a set of dynatrac dynaloc hubs (Dynatrac DynaLoc Locking Hub) was sick of warns run around and them telling me to replace my wheel bearings which cost me a bunch more money and didnt even solve the problem so thanks to their crappy customer support they have lost my business for the future and i am going to strongly advise everyone i know against their product although it may be a good product i have had no luck with their product and their customer service is extremely poor

Not to steal the thread. But when you take apart your hubs the 3 spacers are on top of the snap ring right? So the snap ring would be the last thing you remove when your taking off the unibearing assembly?

i am not sure it has been to long since i have seen my warn hubs as soon after i bought them and started having issues i sent the back and bought dynoloc hubs. but the one thing i have learned is never trust the warn tech support they were sure that my wheel bearings were going out causing to much pressure on the hub causing it to come apart. well after spending alot of money and replacing my wheel bearings the issue continued..... i was not impressed by the product or the tech support so that is the last time i will ever buy any of their products. my dynoloc hubs on the other hand have been trouble free.
