Okay, so I took the truck wheeling a few months ago. Turned out to be a lot rougher than anticipated. It was dumb. That's not the pointl
The point is that when I was getting pulled out, I think I grrenaded my stock auto-locking hubs. There was a loud "PANG!" and I lost traction under my front tires. I immediately switched it to 2wd, afraid I was going to damage something.
1) Did I blow the hubs? I think I did and my buddies thought so too,but is there a way to check without damaging the axle shaft (aka trying to engage it)?
2) If they blew out, how much would it cost to replace them? I don't want manual-lockers because I don't plan on offroading again anytime soon. I just want the stock automatic hub assembly. Parts? Labor? Is it something I should try and do myself or leave to a professional?
