Hub issues

Had a buddy drive my truck home from the dealer and noticed when he followed me my front hubs were spinning. They never spin cause I leave them in auto. I thought maybe they got turned to the lock position so I took my center caps off and they were in auto. I switched them back and forth check the vacuum pump then tried again. Now only the passenger on was spinning. I put it in 4x4 to see if it was working allright and it was when I took it back out of 4x4 with the esof they both stayed spinning even tho 4x4 was off. It's like there stuck in the locked position. Any ideas

That is a very common problem…..I personally think the hub set-up on the Super Duties is junk. How many miles do you have on those hubs? You may need to replace them. If your truck is under warranty get them replaced. The hubs are not cheap.

Good Luck!

Just got mine replaced under warranty with 35k miles last week. Got a new solenoid as well. I have a feeling they were stuck engaged before they were replaced. What are you looking at when you say you could see them spinning?

HUBS SPINNING ? does that mean the front drive shafts ? i don't get the hubs part.

so to test if the esof is behaving properly do you have to jack up the front end and get both wheels off the ground ?? if so guess you need a stout jack...which I don't have.

I have noticed on my front wheel rims have a lot of dirty oily stains...don't know if that is road grime or an issue...the back wheel chrome is clean.

When my front wheels had grease on them it was from a tie rod end boot that tore and was throwing grease on the rims.
