Yes you will need to lock the hubs first. It will probably still work if you turn the switch first and then lock the hubs, but you won't have 4x4 without locking the hubs since you have the Warns. Took me a while to figure out that the Warns don't operate with the vac. switch and must be locked in everytime.

yes all it will do is spin your front drive shaft..because the hubs are locked and the tires are moving so it will spin

You should check to make sure they plugged the vacuum lines properly when they converted to warn hubs
