Has anybody changed the 4wd hubs???????????

I am having issues with my hubs. The truck does a death wobble at idle in 4 high. It will pull in either direction in 2wd. This is intermittent but becoming more consistent, in both directions. What is involved in changing the hubs and does anybody make manual hubs for an 06?

PLEASE help

Warn premium hubs are on the last of my "to do" list. I swore off the sotf, too many vacuum related issues(read unreliable) and when it boils right down to it i'd probably get out and lock the hubs anyways, can't beat warn

Just found out warn does not have anything for beyond 04. According to the dealer nothing is compatable except auto only hubs. I'm hoping now I have a vacuum issue.

Interesting, i didn't know there wasn't anything available after 04. It makes you wonder what's different on the hubs between the years, or why warn after 6 years hasn't made any..

We changed a freind of mines hubs on his either 05 or 06 6.0 he is here on the org, we went to the beach one day and he went to lock in and ended up getting stuck, so get ordered new ones and when we pulled out the stock ones the passenger side was shredded to hell, almost all the teeth were gone on it
the change out is simple on them

Is there play in the hub bearings? Havent seen hubs cause death wobble... Usually something in the steering linkage?
