manual hub swap question

I've got a friends 2000 excursion with manual hubs. i popped the cap because of a terrible grinding sound, and i found nothing in the hubs..... so, i called ford, 350 for one hub, 4 wheel parts, 200 for the set, and i wanna do a cheap repair. part number is the same for 78-04 ford dana 50 hubs, so im thinking of a run to the junkyard. will this work out? anyone have pictures or anything for me? Thanks.

i guess my real question is how the warn/etc hubs will mount because all the ones ive seen bolt on with allan bolts, where the factory one is held on with a kind of snap ring. but the part number is the same for the new hubs for a old truck and for the new truck.

Another common problem is the needle berring that supports the stub axle... mine went bad, and it made the stock lock-out hub rattle something terrible. The wheel berring/hub assembly was under warrentee, so swaping it out was no problem, but all that was bad was the needle berrings. Hub still rattle some, replaceing them with the Warn lock-out hubs would solve it I think.

The warn hubs have an insert that goes into the wheel hub, and is held in place with a snap ring in the same groove as stock ones. Then the outer cover is held to the insert with the allen screws you see. Much better mounting method, no rattles.

so, even if i pulled a set off of a 95 or so they would still have that snap ring? its been way too long since i pulled the set out of my 95 so i cant remember and want to make sure i have everything together before i tear my friends transportation apart.
