warn premium hub help!

Hey everybody, so after my wheel broke off while driving, I began the adventure of piecing it all back together! My hub assembly split in two!

However, when I took the warn locking hub off of the broken hub assembly, I found two broken pieces. One was a plastic hex shaped washer. The other was some sort of ring, not a snap ring though, I have that still. I also need to know how to put the whole locking mechanism back together, any diagrams on these things?

I don't want to take apart the other side and risk the same problem.

my 99 had the warn hubs on it when i bought it...i love them! Very smooth operation, easy to turn and looks alot stronger than the o.g. I had another 99 a few years ago with factory hubs and you might as well carry some big pliers and wd40 with ya if you ever plan on using the 4wd..lol! Not sure what the warn hubs cost but if the price is anything reasonable, i would reccomend them highly!

just looked up the warn hubs for our truck and they range from $275 to $300. If thats all they are its well worth the money to me just to be able to put the truck in 4wd without a struggle. When i had the wheels off mine the other day it looked like they had changed the warn hubs and the truck hubs too...i just assumed you had to change the whole thing including the hubs on the truck. But according to the pics i saw when i looked the warns up...all you change are the locking parts. I dunno....

Yeah you change bearings and hubs and all when you do the hub swap, versus just the locking mechanism with the warns. With just front abs, it appears that I can get the hubs for about 300 maybe a bit more. Its worth it to just do the whole thing really. Probably just do one side at a time and save money since money is really tight. Then im set. And I love the fact I just flip a switch and they lock in and I have no probs getting out of where I'm at.
