On my truck, the passenger side would allow the axle to spin freely when in 2wd while the driver's side would stay engaged. When I took a rubber mallet and beat on the hub a little bit, the axle freed up. I then tore both hubs apart, serviced and greased all the internal components and now both axles are free.
The problem is that I don't think they were ever taken off of Auto so the selector knob is frozen on Auto. We built a custom tool for turning the hubs and were able to break them loose. Hopefully I will be able to work the knobs to the point where I can just use my hand to lock in the hubs.
