but itsnt the orignal spindle nut with the key enough?

If you looked at post #4 I gave you a link to the Spicer nut kit for only $23 that's what I used and that is exactly the kit that comes on the factory 4x4's with manual hubs.

"Vehicles with automatic locking hubs that have 3 screws holding the chrome cap on must use this kit to convert to manual hubs. This is mostly limited to 1995 and 1996 Fords with factory automatics, but could include others. This kit is also required on 90-94 Explorer and 90-97 Ranger when converting factory automatic hubs to manual hubs."

They are on my truck and work like a charm.
