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.
