I read that some of these vehicles are not equiped with locking hubs on the
front. Does this mean they are connected to the front drive shafts / diff /
prop all the time?
I jacked up a front wheel today for another reason and as I turned it round
be hand was suprised to see the shaft going round with it. They are solidly
I was expecting with the truck sitting in 2WD that the hubs would be
disconnected and leave the shafts stationary thus saving the weight of
turning the front drive train and saving wear and tear on all those
Am I expecting too much / wrong thing?
Or is there something wrong with the hub?
I'll be grateful to anyone who can explain how the system works. Haynes
manual dosnt describe what to look for from what I can see. Just says some
have locking hubs and some dont.
Thanks for you time.
