diagnos this

i buried my truck one day pulling a friend of mine out and while trying to get it out something in the front end started poppin and the frontend stopped pulling the first thing i thought was that it was the ring and pinion but they are fine but its still doing it sos i figured hubs because all problems point to them but they look brandnew when you take them out and now i go and put the truck in 4wd on solid ground turn and you can feel the right front tire start to hop when you turn to the left but to the right it doesnt do anything do i have a broken hub? or an axle slipping some how? i know its not the gears since i have looked at them

Check the u-joints on the front axle. They could be bad, also you could have a bad hub.

I would get the warn lock out hubs to replace the stock ford ones.

I would say your hub is blown, did you check the axle U joint?

actully i forgot about that we did check the u joints amd they are fine im realy thinking that its the hubs i just wanted to see if yall had any ideas i figured i might be missing something but when i replace the hubs its gonna be with mile marker premiums because i have had lots of bad luck with warns in situations where i need them but mile markers have worked great for me and they are also cheaper so its a win win situation for me

do i need anthing other than the hubs to replace them?

You will need a 12 pk of Bud, haha. Mile markers are a good choice, just make sure you buy the all metal ones, they have been making some cheap ones besides their all metal hubs. When you pull the old one off make sure you inspect the rest of the hub assembly.

The only way you would need an install kit is if your changing from automatic hubs to manual hubs, and it's actually called a conversion kit.
