Hub lock replacement or full hub replacement?

Pardon my ignorance, but I've yet to replace anything on the front end of my truck. When you jack the front end up and the tire wiggles a bit, is it the hub lock or the entire hub assembly that needs replaced? I've wanted to swap over to the fully manual hubs for awhile but not sure exactly which one to put on...i.e. warn, dynatrac or other various brands. Also, when would the full blown hub free spin kit be neccessary to put in?

I don't care about cost, I care about longevity and not breaking at the most crucial times!

Depending on mileage, it's probably ball joints.

If you have big tires and your truck is jacked up your hub assembly, not 4x4 hub, is probably going.

depending on which way it wiggles, it could be ball joints, tie rod, or wheel bearing, your 4x4 hub has nothing to do with it, best idea is to jack it up, and have someone wiggle it while you check for movement
