I have searched and been unable to find anything on servicing 2005 and up ESOF hubs. Mine are very hard to turn by hand and the defrost comes on when the dash switch is engaged. I know I have a vac leak and I would like to have some info. (pics) on removal and disassembly of the hubs themselves. I have seen several posts asking for similar info. and no one has answered. Can anyone help? Thanks

2006 CC, Lariat, FX4, SB, Chrome Pkg., 70,500 mi. All stock.

I cleaned the chit out of my 04's, even drilled holes on the backside to get penetrating oil in where the knob is, still hard a hell. Gonna have to replace them. Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

My hubs kept locking my front end up and had no vacuum leaks. I replaced them with the Warn manual lockers and have not looked back. $350 for manuals or $800 for auto locking hubs that will fail again.

I swapped out mine when I had one go bad. Since Warn doesn't make hubs for the 2005+ trucks $300+ for an OEM set was an easy answer. No issues now. Simply remove the hex bolts, pop out the old hub, install new one, and check operation.

Now if you want to chuck out the cash there are a few complete front kits that will make the wallet hurt.
