Hey so I'm doing front end work to my ranger. its a 1993, 3.0, 5 speed, with pushbutton 4x4 and auto hubs. 4x4 works great. but since i was doing wheel bearings and brakes i looked into my hubs and i found that the bearing that sits in the end of the hub is missing half of the *****! it is a ball bearing and the hub rebuild kit i found is a roller needle bearing. the bearing in the kit is also much bigger than the one i took out. I've never seen a ball bearing in the ranger hubs before and can't find any info on it online.
Anyone seen anything like this before? is this hub originally from something else?
any help would be appreciated!
Pictures of the hub are in the links below!
