Hub Exchange Advice

i have a 99.5 f350 PSD 7.3

in febuary i picked up a set of super winch 400-439 manual locking hubs, right from day one they gave me issues with this annoying rattle when normal driving if i hit bumps, it isnt a grinding noise or anything like that they just sound like a loose bracket slappin around on both sides.. i figured out it was the hubs by removing them and driving without them, noise is gone!

Why would both hubs rattle? will mile marker hubs fit better?

any insight on this?

Are you sure the hubs are not partially engaged?

Pull the hubs and give em a shake.

My Mile Markers do the same thing. My noise is caused by slop in the outer (chrome) dial housing. See if you can move them while in 2wd, then lock it, and you should see them tighten up.
It seems like there should be some kind of oring were the locker and hub meet.
