4wd hubs and wheel studs

Whats the vacume hubs cost for an 03 7.3? ive got warns but im gettin new wheels and want to put the front hubcaps on so i wont be able to access them so the vacume hubs are my preference. also how much would new wheel studs for the entire truck cost? mine are getting a lil tired. anyone who has done any of these projects? how difficult?

The studs I don't think are replaceable. (someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

They are attached to the wheel hub/bearing assembly, which will run you about $200 / side.

As far as vacuum hubs go, I think that's a step in the wrong direction, but hey, it's your truck and up to you. I don't know where to get them or how much they cost.

When you buy new wheel bearing assemblies they come with new studs. New assy's are available from autozone for 115$ per side. Your studs are tired? Seriously?

I would do what I can to keep the warn hubs, OEM is junk. Hard to engage, harder to disengage, etc. If you do put OEM hubs on then leave the old vacuum system unhooked since it will send signals to try and lock/unlock the hubs that might make things worse. In other words, use the OEM hubs as manual hubs. As I recall, Ford did sell our trucks with non vacuum hubs. Maybe those would be cheaper?

Which studs are you talking about the studs that hold the wheel on or the studs that hold the wheel bearing on?

the studs that hold the wheels on is what im talkin about. Well will i be able to put a closed hubcap over the warns? reason im asking is because i had the open ones in the front and closed caps in the back and when i went to rotate em this time the caps were soo stuck i fudged up the front ones real bad. when i get rims and tires in the fall id like to have the hubcaps the same on all 4 to eliminate this problem. get what im sayin?

If your getting moto 951's then you can pop the end of the center cap on and off with a pocket knife or screw driver. So you could leave your warns and just pop off the cap when needed.

Yep. I just leave my front center cap "cap" off and when I rotate tires I just remove the center and leave it up front. Its gonna fall out when you take the wheel off anyways
