Help, take a look at this. Are these the same hubs?

Ok i asked this before but didnt get much help.

I have a 98' and I want AVM hubs. I found this site which has them for the best price http://www.oconeeoffroad.com/servlet...01-Ford/Detail

The problem is that it says they are for 99-01 Rangers. Is this a mistake? Because I have now found them on this site which says these ones are for 98-01 Rangers http://www.baseline4x4.com/proddetai...rod=15001%2E70

AND THEN i found them on this site which says they are for 97-00 Rangers
http://www.tellico4x4.com/product_in...ducts_id/26509

SO WHATS UP WITH ALL THIS??? They all have the same product number 15001.70 . Are these all the same hubs or what?

Obviously I want the hubs from the first link I posted which are the cheapest but it says they are for 99-01's

HELP PLEASE I dont want to order the wrong ones....

The AVM you want for your truck per the AVM website is 470. You can see for yourself here, http://www.avm.com.br/products4.htm . You can call Oconee Offroad at, 706-534-9955 and ask them if the part they are selling is the AVM series 470. This will probably be the only way you really will know.

I hope this helps.

Thank you Cory. Well maybe im going to have to call them to know for sure, unless someone here can give me a definate yes or no. I mean somebody here must know if its the same hub or not for those years.

I just dont understand how 3 different websites say 3 different things but yet all 3 say their hubs cover the the year 2000 Ranger and they all have the same product number. I mean if the axle is the same on the '98 as the '99 then it should be the same manual hubs for both right? And according to the AVM website the only hub I see that covers from year '98-'00 (the years of the PVH) is the 470 series as you mentioned.

Im starting to think they are all the same hub but I want to be more sure before I order. A phonecall is probably my best bet.

I think that would be the best way to do it. Just give them a call and they will be able to tell you over the phone pretty quickly. Good luck!

Just in case anyone else plans to order from Oconee

Well I just called Oconee this morning and they said that yes that is a typo on their website, that those hubs work for the 98-00 Ranger.

So I then went to place my order and she says they dont ship to Canada UGHHHH! Well then I got off the phone, went back to their website and ordered them online with nothing saying they dont ship here. It didnt kick back my address or anything and they took my payment and gave me a confirmation number. So I guess we'll see....

My fingers are crossed cuz the snow will be here anyday now and Im tired of getting stuck in icy intersections when the light turns green and im just spinning my tires until the light turns red again, as a Ford Escort peels by me with all its passenger staring and snickering at me. I HATE THAT FEELING!!
