if the hubs are not locking because they are broken theres not much you can do besides replace them. the internals are mostly plastic, so once theyre broke, theyre broke. warn manuals FTW!!

you have a 93 so the hubs arent vaccum actuated. if the transfercase is engeged and the front wheels dont turn, the hubs are probably blown out. do you hear any funny noises from the front end at all, grinding or racheting when you engage the transfer case?
