our stock hubs suck anyway. you are going to spend 280 bucks for a new one. just go buy some warns for 180 andsave your self some time and money. the autos aren't the best anyway

Are you talking about hub assembly or the auto hubs for the 4wd?

If you're talking about the first one then I think the best alternative is the DynaTrac setup. However this will set you back a pretty penny and it was also on backorder when I checked. If you're running stock size tires they may not be worth it for you. If you're running larger then a 33" tire they're almost needed.

Hope this helps.

you paid around $300 for both of them, and also where did you get them, online or somewhere else. also did it come with all the berings and stuff to switch out the stock ones.

that is true. yolu have to replace the whole hub. its about 4 someting per side. if you have a advanced auto parts close by go there they can order the hubs for about 184 a peice. or you can go to Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market and its like a nationwide junkyard and look for the hubs assembly. p[retty good prices. i work at advance auto parts so if you need some help let me know.
