Hub conversion

I have a neighbor with a early 99 F250HD and the drivers side hub is shot. I saw awhile ago there was a hub coversion update so he would not have to pay the outragous price for the one he has on there. If there is some one that knows about this would you let me know please. He is looking to go hunting next week and I'm willing to do the work. But the $500.00 for that hub for him is out of his price range and I know some one knows of this update. I plan on switching the other one in the spring for him.
Thanks for the help.

Go to eBay, get a $100 Chinese hub, they work fine...... (mine came with a lifetime guaranteed and Timkin brgs)

go to autozone and let him buy the rotor and hub for a 2001 and slap it on.. i did it to both sides on mine and i think the total price was 350.. you can just do one side for now till he can save enough to do the other side..

When I bought my '99 a few months back both the stock hubs were stuck in the locked position. When I had my Ball Joints changed at Les Schwab they replaced both with the fully manual hubs for about $250 installed.

Find whatever hubs you want, get the part number, then go to google shopping, and ebay...

I found some new set of Warn Premiums in a opened box that had to be sold for used price... $65.00

That was a steal, but i found some regular deals that still fit my high school budget before i saw those.

Good Luck!

He only has rear wheel ABS so he won't need the ABS style. So is there a reason for a rotor change on any of the hubs? My 2000 was a snap. This one is giving me a headache for sure.

from what i remember there is a different "flange size" relating to the newer years as compared to the e99 ones.. regardless.. hub AND rotor for 2001 are cheaper than the hub alone for the e99

ya really want a headache? now's a good time to look at those ball joints.. you've got about 80 percent of the job done when you get the hub off....

I'v done mine and 2 other 2000 for friends in the race club, We even made our own seal setter. This one how ever was done by someone else, and they did not regrease the needles or put new seals in. Some friend of this guy and he whats to open a shop. Charges him $300.00 2 years ago and this was his best job. Right. I got the job on the side while race season is over and told him I would fix it right. And mke the up grade so it won't kill latter in life. Thanks for the info Ford was no help in the transpant and I knew I saw it somewhere here years ago. Will be ordering it today from work. Thanks again.
