Warn Lockers

Hey guys,
Im having wierd issues here...Im finding out im having to rebuild my hubs almost three times a year, either one side or another will stick unlocked and ill have no
4wd..Is anyone else having hubs stick unlocked? Are they supposed to be dry? or Greased? Im almost leaning towards a dry lubricant...Seems like every type of grease I do try, will eventually cause the hub to stick unlocked...Even if I cycle the hub from lock to unlock multiple times...

Feel free to chime in for comments, tips, criticizm.

-Tony

You`re right, he is, but the methodology and use of lubricants would be similar as applied to the ends of the shafts and subjected to use / abuse. I had a lot of troubl e with stocker- lockers with sand and water intrusion and stock seals, went with warns and had issues with heat beaking down lube with mainly on-highway use. The warns are heavier-duty under load, I think. The stock are designed more for the occasional user of 4x4 but seem to hold their lube viscosity better. Just my personal experience...
