Warn locker install question

Hey all,

Just purchased my Warn Lockers and am getting ready to install them in my truck. My question lies with the vacum line to the hubs..... The warn paperwork advises to cap the vacum line. I dont want to have the lines unhooked from the front hubs and dangling with a cap on them, but I dont know if it would cause any prob to leave them attached?

I left mine hooked up and have not had a issue. AC controls work the same. The seal on the Warn's once bolted down is better than the factory units.

I left the vac lines hooked up and have not had an ounce of trouble.... Lockers look great plus they have full lifetime warrenty!!! They were very easy to install and had the job done in less than an hour. The only thing different about them is they are not as deep or tall as the original hubs and when I put my hub cap back on they are now recessed about 1/2 " leaving a small gap around the hub.
