    Anybody ever rebuild Ford Ranger mechanical hubs?
    Mine seem to be tight?:confused2:
     
  2. Are they manual or automatic? Manuals aint too bad. I have auto hubs on my 89 burban, and they are a pain in the arse. Lots of parts and adn they still hang up.:embarassed:

    Be sure not to pack them heavy wheel bearing grease. They are intended to be lubed with oil or a very light hi temp grease:wink:

  11. I agree brother, got to wait til after christmas for the dough.
     
  12. I used that waterproof marine grease, dang, I better clean them up and just use a coat of oil, huh bro? I'll try that before I buy new ones. It's just the one side giving me problems. I can't find a good friggin schematic or detailed maintenance instructions for this s**t.:angry::embarassed:

    I think after the holidays I will just redo the complete front end. This truck is new to me so this way I will know what is there.
