front locking hub question??

I was looking on summitracing about some new front locking hubs. Superwinch has some that are reasonable.
AS you guys know to remove mine, all i needto do is pull the big snap ring and remove the hub. Will these new hubs fit right in the same way?
They all seem to say full time 4wd needs an adapter kit. We dont have full time 4wd, We have to activate it.

heres the link, can some one tell me if these just go right in place of my beat worn out ones(bearings are going bad.

Those do not just slide in place of the stockers.

comparing to warn----- the instructions say to use a kit but it is not needed on the nbs. they will fit right in place of your old hubs. once you do one side, you can do the other side in about 5 minutes. there a breeze to change out. just my 2 cents i would by the warn set from hoaks 4x4. warn is the better brand and hoaks should be the cheapest.

How are they held in place considering they have to have mounting screws?

If you have bearings making noise, hubs won't help anyway.

they send a spring steel type retaining ring to use in place of your old ring. you insert the inner part of the hub, install the ring. then place the outer cap on, check for the correct amount of play. if no shimming is needed, put a small drop of blue loctite to the 6 machine screws, and screw the outer cap to the inner hub part. the manual hubs will not sit out flush with the center cap like the auto hubs do either. so all the screws do is hold the outer cap to the inner part of the hub assy.

I see, that makes sense. I learn something everyday. To the OP, disreguard my 1st post.

There are bearings inside the 4wd hub. When in 2wd the inner part of the hub are stationary while the outer part spins on the bearing. I have pulled mine apart. The bearings have seen better days from being dry.

It's usually the needle bearing inside the hub bearing assembly that the axle rides in. Just my
