the noise would be from metal to metal contact......just like if you wheel bearings, u-joints, tie rod ends, or ball joints dont have grease.....it will have a metal to metal noise...

the grease acts like the "oil"....it is it's lubercation...(lubercation before insertion! )

I dont mean to steal this thread.. But I have a guestion about driving in 4wd.( I have AVM manual locking hubs. I have read the hole thread and I just want to make sure I am clear on this... So...when your driving and the roads are mostly covered in snow,But there a several long wet spots. It is ok to have your hubs locked in and be in 4wd. When there is a long strech of wet you can just turn the switch off and it wont hurt the truck? I know your NOT supost to drive with 4wd on dry hard surfaces at all(like a road). How about if you do not turn the switch off for thoes wet spots as long as they are short? can that hurt the 4wd?

it is completely ok to drive with the 4wd engaged on wet roads....wet roads allow the front end to slip like it needs to without problem......espically if there is snow around the wet, because the wet parts could be ice......

just as long as you dont drive for long periods of time on DRY roads, you will not hurt your 4wd system by leaving it engaged to drive on a road that is snow, water covered...
