96 Ranger 4x4 issues

Hey guys Newbe here, anyways i have a 96 Ranger XLT, I think my Auto hubs are bad, or going back, i switch it in to 4x4 hi, the left front hub doesn't lock right away, i can hear it spin, then it will lock, if i drive a couple feet it feels like its binding, then clunks drives fine for a couple more feet then same, also it wont go to 4x4lo anymore, I had another 96 back in HS that had the auto hubs go bad, but i had a shop put new ones on, i am thinking of doing a Warn manual hub kit, but never ventured into this type of 4x4 front end area, any help, tips and what not will be great.
