It's hard to say what will and won't work if we don't know what it's goin' into... It's not clear from reading your post what year your truck is, so... hard to say if the parts you're asking about would fit.

What I do know is this... the OBS trucks, up to '97 I think, had the standard hollow spindle, berrings and hub, and stub shaft that went thru the spindle and was supported by niddle berrings inside the spindle before it got to the lock out hub. The newer Super Duty trucks, starting as the '99 model year, (no '98 trucks) had the unit berring design hubs... the stub shafts are diffrent from what I've been told, as is most of the rest of the hub assembly.

Others who know more will hopfully clear this up...

I think there are some diffrences in the early '99 (what would be '98's) but anything from a '99-'04 should work if I under stand things correctly... but the '94 parts you listed in the first post probly will not.

Good luck finding what you need... wish I could be more sure of my info, and of more help....

people including myself need to start servicing these more. wish i knew you could! At least once every year or every other year pull the hub off grease the needle bearing, take the abs sensor out of the hub and with a grease gun pump grease into the hole while turning the hub. i did this today and both hubs assembly's took 1/4 tube each (small tube) in the abs senser hole.

Thanks

Removing hub form hub bearing assembly


Separating hub bearing assembly from spindle


The Needle bearing the other side of pick 1 and 2 needs to be GREASED!


the abs sensor is on top of the hub bearing assembly behind the rotor so you will see it bolted to the hub when you remove the caliper and rotor. be very careful its only plastic i broke one today getting it out of the hub bearing. but NP cuz i had a new one that came with the new hub.. unbolt it from the hub bearing pul it out of its 3/8" hole now while spinning the hub use a grease gun to pump grease into the sealed bearing unit. its the wire in this pic


information from : Welcome to guzzle's 4x4 Needle Bearing Maintenance Web Page

yeah you have to take the whole unit off the spindle to get to that bearing. not that hard just 4 bolts. grease the needle bearing and also pull the ABS sensor (sensor bolted to bearing in last pic). pump grease into the hole the abs sensor came out of while spinning the unit.
