4x4 hub replacements

I have an F250 2000 7.3L and I would like to get some factory replacement hubs for me truck. They currently will not engauge and I need new hubs even if that is not the cause. I think the vacuum lines are bad, but I do not know how to find out. Any ideas on where to buy hubs and get a good deal on them. i would like to automatic 4x4 switch to work again. Thanks!

You can do a vacuum test on the lines. This will help pin point where the leak is. But I can pretty much tell you it is the seal on the inside of the hub. Pretty common problem. Personally I would replace the hubs with Warn premium hubs. When you are going to use 4wd often just leave them locked in.

My factory hubs don't work automatically no more. I drive around from Oct. 1st till mid april with the hubs locked in. The only thing it really does is drop my milage about 1mpg.

When I want 4wd I turn the switch the t-case engages and I am in 4wd. When I am done with 4wd I just flip the switch back to 2wd drive.

the factory replacement hubs cost and arm and a leg. I know cuz swapped them in witht the old factory auto hubs. Warn hubs save money and time. They are stronger
