This isn't really gonna help you, but im sort of in the same boat, lookin to get new hubs. I tore mine apart today, spend some time cleaning and greasing the hell out of everything and they still don't disengage properly, both are in the unlock position but they are still locked in. Ford hubs are JUNK. Thats rediculous that new ford hubs cost that much for junk. Im wantin a deal on some good aftermarkets too.

yes, definatley go with the warns. Got mine at O'reillys for $240 for the pair including tax. Dealer told me the same thing $350 for "one" of their junk lock out hubs. Make sure your hub bearings and everything else is allright first because my 4 week old warns are already trashed from everything else being shot.
