Hubs wont go back in

I was helping a friend with a 2004 F250 and we can not get a single set of front hubs to go back in. We had to pull the old hubs out by placing the bolts back in with out the cover and yanking them out with some vise grips. We could not put in my factory ford hubs, his old Mile Markers or his new set of Warns. All three sets slide right in and out of my 1999 F250, but completely refused to go into his on either side of his truck. Could both of his hub bearings be bent somehow. Anyone have any ideas?

I thought we had the same axle and spline counts so they should slip in and out at least

look at the splines on the end of the stub hub ( outer axle ) sometimes when people pull the axle shaft for ball joints the put it back in with a hammer . it mess up the splines take a file and work around it

99-04 is the same style hub. Usually you have to take a pry bar and move the axle around to center it with the hub. Only way they will go together. By moving the axle around I mean at the spindle/u-joint area. It takes a little manipulating. Good Luck

I agree with the above. Just be patient and don't try to hammer them back in. I've had them slide right in and, sometimes, they take an hour to get back in. Like said above, check the splines and file down any imperfections.
