No highway driving, only city driving and nothing over 40-45 mph
My vacuum lock isnt working, so no 4wd.
Maybe I have no understanding and am asking a stupid question.
Just need to know about the locker thing to hopefully get my 4wd back....
Will I mess anything up if I leave the front hubs locked in and drive around in 2wd?
Answer, No you will not. I have been doing this for a while now. The only thing you will get is about 1-2 mpg loss. My front hubs are like yours the vaccuum lines leak and do not lock the hubs in. So come Oct. 1st which is the start of deer season my hubs get locked in. I unlock them come April 1st. Being I live in Michigan I will never know when I will need 4wheeldrive during this time frame. I have not experinced any premature wear or failure from any parts on the front axles from doing this. Even driving at highway speeds I have no problems.
