If you have the vacuum hubs then you can get the AVM's (there is a set for sale in the classifieds right now for $75). If you have the live axle then you need to do more than just swap out the hubs.

you need to know whether or not you have pulse vacuum hubs or the live axle setup. If you have vacuum hubs you can get the AVM's if you have the live axle then check this thread

You can get them from ebay for something like $110 including shipping.

If you have an axle nut then you have the live axle setup and you cannot use the AVMs

so there's no axle nut? or is there?

you cant have a live axle and PHV hubs at the same time, your cv shafts can always spin with the PHV system tho..

?

apparently you don't know for sure you have PHV, because the PHV trucks only have a $25 plastic snap ring that holds the CV shaft in, trust me i have been in there 4 times in the last month

its cool. i just wanted to get it straightened out
3" body and " 5" " Suspension.. so 8"+ tires around 10-11..

once i do 5" yoda springs, ill have far more than 5" suspension

i dont know much about 00's maybe they still ran the lines but didnt connect themto anything? maybe some 00's had PHV hubs so they ran the lines? idk

the ABS wire is covered in rubber i believe too

What a confusing thread. Is this a correct summary:

live axles means vacum hubs and no you can not just install the AVM manual hubs.
To install AVM manual hubs you need to replace your axle with one with a nut at the end as the vacum hubs do not have a nut.

I thought the same as chris with the Pvh but is must be the abs sensor. I understand it not.
